Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr. is Research Professor in New Testament (Whitefield Theological Seminary), a theological researcher and writer, conference speaker, and a retired Presbyterian pastor (after 37 years of pastoral ministry).
This site offers "Serious Studies for Serious Christians" in a broad range of theological and exegetical issues from a Reformed theological perspective. Some of the key issues for which I have educational materials include: Calvinism, reformed theology, Presbyterianism, eschatology in general, postmillennialism, preterism, the Book of Revelation, theonomy, six-day creation, presuppositionalism, predestination, lordship salvation, infant baptism, the Christian worldview, Christian education, the Christian and alcohol, and more.
I have produced in-depth materials critiquing and rebutting dispensationalism, Hyper-preterism, the framework hypothesis, paedocommunion, exclusive psalmody, annihilationism, and other popular theological abberations.
Because of my interest in promoting the Christian worldview, I also offer a Christian writing correspondence course: "Righteous Writing." This course is designed to train you in reading techniques, research method, improving writing style, securing a publisher, and techniques of book promotion. Writing well can be an important means of promoting the faith in the marketplace of ideas.
I am a graduate of Tennessee Temple University (B.A., cum laude, in Biblical Studies), Reformed Theological Seminary (M. Div.), Whitefield Theological Seminary (Th. M.; Th. D., summa cum laude, in New Testament). I also attended Grace Theological Seminary for two years, while a dispensationalist.
I am the Director of GoodBirth Ministries, a non-profit religious educational ministry committed to sponsoring, subsidizing, and advancing serious Christian scholarship and education.

In 2017 my two volume commentary on Revelation will be published.

My wife and I have been married since 1971. We are both from Tennessee (Chattanooga and Nashville). Consequently, we speak the King's English, because we are from Tennessee where Elvis was from.
