One of the great Bible-upholding theologians of our day and a recognized leader in the battle for biblical inerrancy, Dr. John C. Whitcomb is a prolific author and captivating speaker, as well as a highly regarded professor of Old Testament and Christian theology for more than 50 years.
Dr. Whitcomb’s most famous work, The Genesis Flood (co-authored in 1961 with the late Dr. Henry Morris), is widely acknowledged by friend and foe alike as having had a significant part in igniting the modern creationist movement around the world (somewhat surprising, given that the book was primarily about the other major event in the book of Genesis: Noah’s Flood).
Dr. Whitcomb taught at Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana, from 1951–1990. Among his published creationist works are The Early Earth and The World That Perished. He is also known as a superb and gracious speaker on a wide range of apologetics topics.
Dr. Whitcomb’s life and ministry may be summed up in this quotation: “I want to be in the full-time business of finding out what God says and telling as many people as I can.”
He and his wife Norma reside in Indianapolis, and enjoy spending time with their five sons, one daughter and 17 grandchildren.
