E.J. and Amaretta Prevatte Biblical Studies Lecture Series

November 8, 2022 – 10:40 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Rev. Dr. Nancy L. deClaissé-Walford

Rev. Dr. Nancy L. deClaissé-Walford is Emerita Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages at Mercer University School of Theology. She earned a PhD in Old Testament from Baylor University, a Master of Arts in Semitic Languages and Literature from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor’s degree in History from California State University, Northridge.

She is the author of five books and numerous chapters in books and journal articles. Her current project is a revision of the Psalm commentary in the Word Biblical Commentary series. A nationally and internationally known speaker, Dr. deClaissé-Walford has lectured in England, South Africa, Germany, and many venues in the United States.

She and her husband, Steve, have two grown sons and two grandsons. They live with their furry children on Nancy’s 100-acre family farm in southern Indiana, where she enjoys vegetable gardening and canning and freezing. They also enjoy traveling the states in their motorhome.

E. J. and Amaretta Prevatte, long-time friends and benefactors of Campbell University, had a vision. In Mr. Prevatte’s own words, “It was my personal feeling that there was a need for an in-depth study of the Bible that the ordinary degree work did not provide. There should be a place somewhere for renowned Biblical scholars to share their wisdom with our Baptist people, particularly in eastern North Carolina.”

With this in mind, the Prevattes established the E. J. and Amaretta Prevatte Biblical Studies Lecture Series in which was announced in May 1985.
