Gerald A. Klingbeil enjoys languages, cross-cultural encounters, and creative people. He also likes talking (and writing) about the power of ritual. He has spent more than 15 years as professor of Hebrew Bible and Ancient Near Eastern studies at Adventist universities in South America and Asia, after earning his D.Litt. degree from Stellenbosch University, South Africa, in 1995. Gerald was born and raised in Germany and is currently serving as associate editor of Adventist Review and Adventist World magazines. He is also a research professor at the Theological Seminary at Andrews University and has published more than a dozen books and hundreds of academic and popular articles, dictionary and lexica entries, and book chapters. He makes sure that his wife Chantal reads everything he publishes and loves to team up with her for presentations and team-preaching. Gerald and Chantal just recently experienced the empty nest syndrome but are happy to report that their daughters are just a phone-call away and always happy to come home.
