J. Ellsworth Kalas Studies

Across his career Kalas wore many hats: pastor, professor, seminary president. Through all of them, however, he remained first and foremost an interpreter of God’s word, skillfully finding new insights and meanings in even the most familiar biblical stories.

Take the best preacher you’ve ever heard, add in the teacher who first opened your eyes to the excitement and meaning of your favorite subject in school, combine these with that member of the family to whom you could always turn for the best advice, stir them all together, and you’ll get a flavor of the writing of J. Ellsworth Kalas.
