Fr. Dwight Longenecker was brought up in an Evangelical home, and after taking a degree in Speech and English went to study theology at Oxford University. He was ordained as a minister in the Church of England and served there as a chaplain at Kings College, Cambridge and a country vicar.

In addition to his award winning blog, he has written twenty books and booklets and thousands of articles for leading journals, magazines, papers and websites. A popular conference speaker, Fr. Longenecker is a skilled, entertaining and enthusiastic lecturer.
His book The Mystery of the Magi provides the perfect background for his lectures on the historical veracity of the New Testament. Triumphs and Tragedies—his twenty-three part podcast series on church history means these lectures will be rooted in his knowledge of the ancient world. Well traveled in Rome and the Holy Land, Fr.
