John Mark Hicks
John Mark Hicks has taught full-time in higher education among Churches of Christ since 1982 and is currently professor of theology at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. He has taught in over forty states and twenty countries around the world. He has authored, coauthored, edited, or contributed to over thirty books as well as contributing to both academic and popular journals. He is married to Jennifer and shares five children and six grandchildren with her.
He has taught academic theology for forty years but has always remained deeply connected to the Nashville community, as he counseled with people, taught Bible classes, and delivered homilies. He has used the material in Around the Bible in 80 Days in a wide variety of settings, and the response to it has encouraged him to provide it in this format.
