The Landgrove Meeting House welcomes Dr. Gregory Mobley, who will preside at the 9:30 a.m. Sunday service on August 5. He is a professor, author and ordained American Baptist minister with a special interest in exploring the stories of the Bible.

After teaching Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at Union Theological Seminary in New York and the Andover Newtown Theological Seminary, he became a Professor of Hebrew Bible and Congregational Studies at Yale Divinity School in 2017. He is also a widely accomplished author. His books include ‘The Birth of Satan: Tracing the Devil’s Biblical Roots’ (with TJ Wray); ‘Samson and the Liminal Hero in the Ancient Near East,’ ‘The Return of the Chaos Monsters and other backstories of the Bible and ‘My Neighbor’s Faith: Stories of Interfaith Encounter, Growth and Transformation’  with J Peace and O Rose. Professor Mobley’s teaching interests include Judges, prophetic literature, Job and reading the Bible in the light of contemporary sensibilities toward environmental sustainability. He writes articles and book reviews, teaches courses on interfaith learning, has done archaeological field work in Israel and served as editorial assistant on the Dead Sea Scrolls – and there’s more, making for quite a morning!
