Dr. Robert Berg was educated at Wheaton College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Drew University. After teaching for three years at Valley Forge Christian College, he came to Evangel University in 1989, where he is now Professor of New Testament. In his time here, he has served as Chair of the Department of Theology, and Director of LifeWorks: The Center for Leadership and Life Calling, and currently is Chair of the Core Curriculum Committee. He is particularly interested in interdisciplinary learning and took great pleasure in the creation and presentation of a series of interdisciplinary courses in the Evangel curriculum. His most recent writing project considers the painter Pablo Picasso, the composer Igor Stravinsky, and the early Pentecostal movement as cultural expressions of primitivism in the early twentieth century, and “All Men are Created Equal” in the Declaration of Independence as a noteworthy example of how texts have been reinterpreted over time. He is married to Jane Munson Berg, an opera singer by training, and teaches voice at Evangel. They have two children, David, currently in training in cryptology with the U.S. Navy, and Mollie, a canine of undetermined breed.
