The Bible You Never Hear Preached in Church!
Author: Rev. Dr. James K. Stewart
In 1976, Rev. Dr. Stewart read the whole Bible for the first time and became fascinated with God’s relationship with creation. After an early life in construction, Dr. Stewart felt God’s calling and returned to university. At university, he majored in ancient history and studied the Hebrew language. His exegetical work is taken directly from biblical Hebrew and Greek. This ability has helped him understand how ancient male bias has been promoted by the church in all ages. As a student of the Bible, he has come to see how the women’s voice has often been suppressed. He has also come to appreciate that when it is not suppressed, a certain beauty shines forth. Knowledge of scripture, from the Hebrew perspective, allowed him to discover how the male voice can make a positive statement at the beginning of a story and then go on to contradict the statement by describing the negative actions that followed. Dr. Stewart lives in Milverton, Ontario, with his wife, Marjorie, of forty-five years; they enjoy visiting their two children and five grandchildren. Retirement has given him the opportunity to research, write, and play golf. —Ordained as an Elder in Chedoke Presbyterian Church in 1981 —Attended McMaster University, Hamilton, in1996 —Diploma in Theology, Knox College, Toronto —Master of Divinity degree, University of Toronto —Doctor of Ministry, Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland, Ohio —Certificate course in conflict management, Conrad Grebel, Waterloo —Ordained to Ministry of Word and Sacraments in 2001 —Pastor of churches in Bathurst, New Brunswick, and Milverton, Ontario —Retired in 2012 —Past Master of Corinthian Lodge #513, Hamilton, Ontario —Past Most Wise Sovereign of Hamilton Chapter of Rose Croix —Honorary Member of Supreme Council AASR 33 —Jim was a master scuba instructor. —He loves diving and fi shing in the Caribbean.
