I. Howard Marshall is Emeritus Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Honorary Research Professor at the University of Abderdeen (Scotland), specifically in the department of Divinity and Religious Studies. He is also the Chair of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical and Theological Research and was formerly President of the British New Testament Society and Chair of the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians. Marshall is generally Arminian in his theology and an astute exegete.


Speaking of himself, he writes:

"My main interests in research have been Luke-Acts, the Pastoral Epistles, and aspects of New Testament theology. These have led to the publication of commentaries on the Greek text of Luke and the Pastoral Epistles. I have been particularly concerned with the work of Luke as both historian and theologian; this led to my sharing in the editing of a collection of essays on the theology of Acts."

"More recently I have written part of the second volume of a New Testament introduction for students and edited a revision and updating of Moulton and Geden's Concordance to the Greek New Testament so that it can be used with the current major editions of the Greek New Testament as well as with older editions."

"In process of publication are a theology of the New Testament aimed primarily at the student market and a section on Acts in a one-volume commentary on the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament. A short book on the problem of how we get from the Bible to a contemporary theology is due to appear soon. My current project is to collaborate with Stephen N. Williams in a theological commentary on Romans for the Two Horizons series."

"I have taught modules recently at Bibelschule Wiedenest; International Baptist Theological Seminary, Prague; the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo; Donetsk Christian University, Ukraine; I am scheduled to teach in summer 2004 at Fuller Theological Seminary Northern Campus."[1]
