The Master’s Seminary is pleased to announce the promotion of Dr. Michael Grisanti to the position of  Distinguished Research Professor of Old Testament.

Dr. Grisanti joined the faculty of TMS in 1997 and currently serves as the chair of our Old Testament Department. Over the years, he has actively engaged in scholarly research, both in print and through his participation in leading academic societies.

Dr. Grisanti contributed to the New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis, The Baker Illustrated Bible Handbook, Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible, and the Bible Knowledge Key Word Study set. He wrote the commentary on Deuteronomy in the revised edition of The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, and the forthcoming volume on Deuteronomy in the Teach the Text series. He co-authored The World and the Word: An Introduction to the OT and also served as editor of The Bible Version Debate and Giving the Sense: Understanding and Using Old Testament Historical Texts. In addition, Dr. Grisanti wrote numerous articles on Old Testament topics which have been published in Bibliotheca Sacra, The Master’s Seminary Journal, and the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society. 

In this new role, Dr. Grisanti will continue to teach in the classroom, but at a reduced load—allowing him to devote more time to research and writing. We are eager to foster an institutional culture that places value on biblical scholarship for the glory of God. We believe Dr. Grisanti’s new position strategically contributes to that institutional objective.
