Carl P. Cosaert

(B.A. Union College [1989]; M.Div., Andrews University [1993]; M.A. Nazarene Theological Seminary [2000]; Ph.D. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, New Testament and Early Christianity [2005])

Dr. Carl P. Cosaert is a professor of Biblical Studies at Walla Walla University. He has a passion for helping others understand the wonderful news of what God has done for the human race in Christ. A graduate from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, his desire to better understand Scripture has led him to complete two masters degrees and a doctorate in New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of North Carolina. He has been teaching in the School of Theology at Walla Walla University for ten years. Before earning his Ph.D., he served as a pastor for ten years in the Midwest. The combination of his experience as an ordained Adventist minister and his diverse academic background provides him with a rich perspective for his classes. He enjoys preaching and is the author of a number of published works. His most recent work is entitled, "Galatians: A Fiery Response to a Struggling Church." The book accompanied the recent Sabbath School Lesson Quarterly on Galatians, of which he is also  the primary contributor. He is the author of several forthcoming projects, including the revised study notes on Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, and Galatians in the Andrews Study Bible (NIV), and also the commentary on Galatians for the Andrews Bible Commentary. He is currently working on a commentary project for 1 and 2 Timothy. Carl has also been involved with the Theology of Ordination Study Committee where he has written and spoken in favor of the ordination of women within the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

His wife, Carol, is an elementary school teacher who loves working with kids. Their four adult children are Marissa, McKenzie, and  Matthew. Their oldest daughter Mindy is deceased.
