With a background in medical imaging technology, Dr. Brian Aucker came to Covenant Seminary to pursue his MDiv degree, graduating in 1996. After completing PhD studies in Old Testament with Graeme Auld at the University of Edinburgh in 2000, he came back to the Seminary for a year as adjunct professor of Old Testament. For three years, he served as assistant pastor at The Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA), St. Louis, Missouri, and then taught for three years at Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis. He returned to Covenant Seminary as full time faculty in Fall 2007.
Dr. Aucker is the co-editor of Reflection and Refraction: Studies in Biblical Historiography in Honour of A. Graeme Auld (Brill, 2006). For the recently published ESV Study Bible, he wrote the study notes for Joel, Micah, and Haggai and functioned as an Old Testament Consultant. His passion is to bring alive the Old Testament historical books and point students to Jesus, the true prophet, priest, and king.
Dr. Aucker is married to Pam, and their expanding family includes three children, a son and daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren.
