About Dr. Terry Edwards
Dr. Terry L. Edwards serves both the V.P. Black School of Biblical Studies and the Department of Humanities. He holds a bachelor’s degree in music education and biblical languages from Harding University, a master of arts and a doctor of philosophy degree in humanities from Florida State University. He has completed an additional 50 hours of graduate studies in music history and biblical studies at Butler University and Freed-Hardeman University.
At Faulkner, he teaches the Western Cultural Heritage course sequence, and World Geography within the Department of Social Sciences. His Bible assignments include a variety of New Testament courses (Life of Christ, Life of Paul, the Book of Acts, The Prison Epistles, I & II Corinthians, Galatians, I & II Thessalonians and Biblical Hermeneutics). A central interest of his studies is a better understanding of the world of the time of Jesus (history, archaeology, culture).
In addition to his teaching duties, Edwards serves as a field director of Faulkner’s Study Abroad programs in Italy and Greece. He has also served as a minister of the gospel for congregations in Italy, Greece, Alabama, Tennessee and Arkansas. He writes periodically for both academic and inspirational publications. Edwards says his guitar has been a life-long companion.
“My passion for the apostle Paul began to develop when I was 19, and I give thanks to God that I have been given the opportunity to pursue this love through travels and teaching.”
