Dr. Daniel Carroll (PhD, University of Sheffield), Professor of Biblical Studies and Pedagogy at Wheaton College, is half-Guatemalan and was raised bilingual and bicultural. In his youth, he spent many summers in Guatemala and later taught at El Seminario Teológico Centroamericano in Guatemala City for thirteen years. His books include The Bible and Borders: Hearing God’s Word on Immigration and Immigrant Neighbors among Us: Immigration across Theological Traditions.
In addition, his studies in English literature and literary theory have generated an ongoing engagement with literary approaches to the Old Testament and critical studies. Experiences in this country and abroad have led him to a deep appreciation for the unique contributions that ethnic minorities, women, and the global church make to the interpretation of the Old Testament. Before coming to Wheaton, Dr. Carroll taught Old Testament at Denver Seminary for many years and founded a Spanish-language lay training program there.
Dr. Carroll has been involved in Latino/a churches and teaching on the Bible and immigration for many years. His research focuses on the prophetic literature and Old Testament social ethics. He has recently published a major commentary on the book of Amos, and a book on the prophetic voice for today will appear soon.
