Born March 30, 1942

Albert Marten "Al" Wolters (born 1942 in the Netherlands) is an emeritus professor of religion at Redeemer University College in Ancaster, Ontario (near Hamilton).[1]


Wolters studied at Calvin College (B.A., 1964), the Free University of Amsterdam (Ph.D., 1972), and McMaster University (M.A., 1987).[1]


Wolters' best-known book is Creation regained: Biblical basics for a reformational worldview, originally published in 1985[2] with a second edition in 2005.[3] It has been translated into Spanish[4] and other languages.[2]

Following in the tradition of Reformed writers such as Kuyper, Bavinck, Dooyeweerd, and Vollenhoven,[5] Wolters outlines a worldview based around the categories of creation, fall, and redemption.

Wolters has made a particular study of the Copper Scroll, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. He has published multiple papers on the subject[6] as well as a pamphlet The Copper Scroll: Overview, Text and Translation as a supplement to the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament.[7]
