The Rev. Dr. Klaus-Peter Adam to join LSTC faculty

Posted Jan 13, 2009

The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago Board of Directors has elected the Rev. Dr. Klaus-Peter Adam to be associate professor of Old Testament at the seminary. He is scheduled to begin teaching in the spring semester 2009.

Dr. Adam has taught Old Testament and religious studies at universities in Marburg, Hamburg, Bremen, and Erlangen, in Germany. He is an ordained minister who served in the Lutheran church of Wuerttemberg from 1995 to 2001. Most recently, he has been a research scholar concentrating on biblical historiography, the stories about Saul and David, the book of Kings, biblical archaeology, and the impact of dramatic forms on biblical narratives. In his work, he combines the historical and theological dimensions of Old Testament scholarship as he draws on philological, historical, literary, and comparative methods of examining the text.

Klaus-Peter Adam holds a Ph.D. from Philipps-University of Marburg and did his master's studies at Berlin, Tubingen, and Munich.
