Speaking and teaching schedule

CCC Chicago (July 2017) 4

I love to speak, particularly on topics related to the Old Testament, or my books:
God Behaving Badly,
Prostitutes and Polygamists.

To invite me to speak at your church, fellowship, or conference, email me (dlamb@biblical.edu).

Here’s a video of my sermon at Christ Community Church on “Why is the Bible so Violent?” (40 minutes; 15-16 July 2017) as part of their series of tough questions (Elephants).  I start after the 2 minute elephant story intro. Enjoy.


To see a 2-minute trailer for my book Prostitutes and Polygamistsclick here.

Here’s a 35 minute video of my talk, “Abraham the Pimping Patriarch, Tamar the Pious Prostitute, and David the Raping Monarch” from a BTS alumni event (Oct 2015).

  1. Great to see you’re teaching a course on Genesis in the Fall. My book won’t be out (tentatively) until October, but I do hope you will check it out and encourage your students–especially if any of them are wrestling with Jacob or the Jacob cycle–to check it out and engage it. I’d be curious to know if anyone does.

    Hope you are well.
