After a season of rebellion in his late teens, Andy Abernethy experienced God’s mercy in Christ in a radical way and transferred to Bethel College where he discovered a love for reading the Bible. This developed into a calling to teach God’s word. After studying at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Andy lectured in Old Testament at Ridley College for three years, before becoming Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, Chicago. His PhD was on Isaiah and he has edited several compendiums as well as working on two books: Eating in Isaiah: Approaching Food and Drink in Isaiah’s Structure and Message and Your Kingdom Come in Isaiah: A Theological-Thematic Approach to the Book of Isaiah. Andy’s wife Katie is a professional violinist, and they have two small daughters. Andy plays basketball for relaxation, making good use of his outstanding height!
