Stuart (born 1943) is Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, an interdenominational Evangelical Seminary.[1] He received his B.A. magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1964, spent two years at Yale Divinity School, and in 1971 received his PhD in Near Eastern Languages and Literature from Harvard University, on meter in Hebrew Poetry.

His books include How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, and How to Read the Bible Book-By-Book (both of which he co-authored with New Testament scholar and then fellow Gordon-Conwell professor Gordon Fee); Old Testament Exegesis: A Primer for Students and Pastors; Hosea-Jonah (Word Biblical Commentary); and Exodus (New American Commentary). His articles have appeared in such publications as Christianity Today and Decision magazine. He has been quoted in Time magazine, and also has appeared in the television series Mysteries of the Bible and Christianity: The First Thousand Years. The aforementioned How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth has sold over 750,000 copies as of this writing and has been translated into over 20 languages. The fourth edition of Old Testament Exegesis: A Primer for Students and Pastors is now in preparation, since this book has been among the 25 top-selling books for Westminster John Knox Press for over two decades. As of 2005, Stuart had ability or worked in at least 18 different languages, ancient and modern, including Hebrew, Aramaic, Akkadian (Babylonian and Assyrian), Ugaritic, Egyptian, Arabic, Syriac, Moabite, Phoenician; Greek and Latin; as well as German, French, Italian and Romanian. He also serves as the senior pastor of the Linebrook Church of Ipswich, Massachusetts, and was the former senior pastor of Boxford's First Congregational Church. He is the father of eight grown children, four of which he and his wife adopted. He currently resides in Bradford, Massachusetts and watches over two tree farms in Farmington, New Hampshire.
