About the Speaker

Dr. Peter Jones is the Scholar in Residence and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster-California Seminary in Escondido, California.  He hods a MDiv from Godon-Conwell Theological Seminary, a ThM from Harvard Divinity School, and a PhD from Princeton Theological Seminary.
 
Dr. Jones grew up in Liverpool, England and was a close boyhood friend of Beatle John Lennon.  He is married to Rebecca nee' Clowney and together they have seven children and numerous grandchildren.
 
He and his family came to the U.S. in 1991, after 18 years of cross-cultural mission work on behalf of the Presbyterian Church in America, assisting the theological training of Reformed pastors and church planters in France.  It is no exaggeration to say that he played a pivotal role in re-energizing the Huguenot church in that nation.
 
He taught Greek and New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary, and was Profressor de Noveau Testament and Director of the Master's Programme, Facultié de Théologie Réformée d’Aix-en-Provence, and was Professor of New Testament at Westminster California Seminary from 1991 to 2003.
 
Among his writings are: 1 Corinthians 15:8 - Paul the Last Apostle; The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back; Spirit Wars; Gospel Truth and Pagan Lies; Capturing the Pagan Mind; the best-selling Cracking DaVinci's Code (co-author); Stolen Identity: the Conspiracy to Reinvent Jesus; and The God of Sex: How Spirituality Determines Sexuality.
 
In January 2003 Dr. Jones was named Scholar in Residence and Adjunct Professor at Westminster Californai Seminary.  That same year he launched Christian Witness to a Pagan Planet, an organization dedicated to equipping the Church to bring the good news of the Gospel to an increasingly pagan world. 

Dr. Jones plays modern jazz piano and plays golf to a three handicap.
