More About the Author
Earl Cripe is a scholar, a theologian, a pastor, and an author. For 45 years, he has held the position of senior pastor in an interdenominational community Bible Church in California. Over the past 43 years, Earl has been a radio and television commentator. He holds a Doctor of Arts degree with a major in theology. Dr. Cripe is widely known for his expository Bible teaching and his defense of the Historic Orthodox Christian Faith. His writings include a six volume harmony the of the Gospels, and commentaries on Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, First and Second Thessalonians, First and Second Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, First and Second Peter, that Book of Revelation, and a three volume set on Genesis. In addition, Dr. Cripe has authored a systematic theology on the Kingdom of God from Genesis to Revelation and a layman's theological dictionary. His most recent publication is The Dust and the Glory, the first of his three volumes on Genesis. This book, which has only been out a short time, has already been widely noted. It is a comprehensive treatise of the transcendent questions facing the human race. Where did the heavens and the earth come from? Is the biblical story of creation literal? Was Adam a real, historical person and his that important to the historic faith? Was the serpent in the Garden the devil? Where did evil come from? Was the natural soul of man created immortal? Did the Genesis Flood really happened? Was it universal? These are a few of the many primal questions asked and answered in his most recent book.
Dr. Cripe has been invited to speak at symposiums and conferences in the US and abroad, and has debated many of the vital issues that face the Christian Church in our times with some of the leading theologians in the world. He has been asked to write articles for Crosswinds and Chalcedon magazines and has published white papers on vital and controversial subject.
Earl is an old man now and how many years he has left is an open question but they are probably few. He hopes to finish his commentaries on the New Testament (the Epistles of John, Jude, the Acts of the Apostles, and the Corinthian Letters are yet to be done), and then to write as many commentaries on the Old Testament as time allows. Earl Cripe is known for his lucidity, clarity of thought, in-depth understanding, his Christian mysticism, and his uncompromising defense of the faith.
