Graeme Goldsworthy (born 7 September 1934) is an Australian evangelical Anglican theologian specialising in the Old Testament and Biblical theology. His most significant work is a trilogy: Gospel and Kingdom, Gospel and Wisdom, and The Gospel in Revelation. Goldsworthy has authored several other books including According to Plan: The Unfolding Revelation of God in the Bible, and Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture.[1][2] He holds the M.A. of the University of Cambridge in England, and the Th.M. and Ph.D. of Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, Virginia (now named Union Presbyterian Seminary).

Goldsworthy has been influential across the world,[3] but especially in the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. Michael Jensen notes that, along with that of Donald Robinson and Bill Dumbrell, Goldsworthy's work "has been crucial for shaping how Sydney Anglicans think about and preach from the Bible."[4] Eric Brian Watkins suggests that it has "done much to vitalize interest" in redemptive-historical preaching and hermeneutics.[3]
