Robert Lewis Reymond (October 30, 1932 – September 20, 2013[1][2]) was a Christian theologian of the Protestant Reformed tradition and the author of New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith (1998; 2nd edition, 2020). Reymond held B.A., M.A., and PhD degrees from Bob Jones University, was ordained into the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod in 1967,[3] and taught at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri (1968-1990) and Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (1990-2008). While at Covenant, Reymond also served in a pastoral role, pastoring an RPCES congregation in Hazelwood, MO between 1968 and 1973 and serving as interim pastor at another RPCES congregation in Waterloo, IL, between 1981 and 1985.[3] In 1983, Reymond became affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America, as a result of the RPCES's merger with the PCA.. After resigning from Knox in January 2008, he accepted a call as regular pulpit supply of Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, a Ft. Lauderdale congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

Reymond wrote a book on Paul entitled Paul Missionary Theologian (2003) and another about Jesus called Jesus Divine Messiah (2003). Other books include a short biography of John Calvin (2004), Contending for the Faith: Lines in the Sand That Strengthen the Church (2005), The God-Centered Preacher, The Reformation's Conflict with Rome: Why It Must Continue, What is God, and The Lamb of God. Reymond wrote a A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith (1998; 2nd edition, 2020) as a culmination of his years as a professor and pastor. [4]
