Andrew Sach

Dr Andrew Sach is a contemporary evangelical Christian speaker and author. In recent years he has been a regular speaker at the Word Alive conference.

After studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, Sach worked as an apprentice for a year at the church of St Andrew the Great, Cambridge. He then completed a doctorate at the University of York, before working for St Helen's Bishopsgate in London for three years. Whilst there he studied part-time at the Cornhill Training Course. From there went to Oak Hill Theological College (with a six-month exchange to Moore Theological College, Sydney) to train as a pastor-teacher in the Church of England.

Sach collaborated with Nigel Beynon to produce a book on how to understand the message of the Bible. Dig Deeper, was published by IVP in 2005. In 2010 he co-wrote "Dig Even Deeper" with Richard Alldritt, applying the Dig Deeper tools to the book of Exodus, and most recently, "Dig Deeper into the Gospels" with Tim Hiorns, focussing on Mark's gospel.

He wrote Pierced for Our Transgressions with Dr Steve Jeffery and Dr Mike Ovey of Oak Hill, in which they defend an orthodox understanding of Christ's crucifixion as penal substitution.

Sach has appeared in a number of the video series 'Preaching Matters', talking on topics such as New Perspective on Paul, Biblical Hebrew, and tactics for preaching.[1][2]

Sach opposes Neo-Darwinian evolution viewing it as wholly at variance with the first books of the Bible. Sach, however, challenges the notion that the Hebrew word 'Yom" (Hebrew: יום) in the creation account, according to Genesis, refers to a literal day (24 hours), therefore denying that creation occurred in a period of six days (6 x 24 hours). Rather, Sach proposes that the Genesis creation account is a poetic way of speaking about the careful ordered way in which God made the universe.[3]
