Ace The Test

Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministries, Dr. Abraham Kuruvilla, exhorts students to “ace the faith” of faith through the study of Abraham’s life and how dealt with his own tests and trials.

Abraham Kuruvilla
Dr. Kuruvilla is Senior Research Professor of Preaching and Pastoral Ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is Indian by ethnicity, but was born in Kuwait where his father was working. He has a medical degree from the University of Kerala in India, a PhD in immunology from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and took his dermatology residency at Boston University School of Medicine. He then moved on to theological education, obtaining a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary and a PhD from the University of Aberdeen. These days, Dr. Kuruvilla centers his ministry around the art and science of preaching: exploring preaching through research and scholarship, explaining preaching by training the next generation of church leaders, and exemplifying preaching in regular pulpit engagements in the US and elsewhere. He has served as the President of the Evangelical Homiletics Society, and in his spare time he writes preaching commentaries, and other books related to preaching, all with a focus on the hermeneutics of homiletics.  He has also served as interim preacher of a number of churches in Texas and in Massachusetts. Dr. Kuruvilla is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology, and he maintains an active clinical schedule seeing patients and taking care of their skin, hair, and nails!  Single by choice, he has a special interest in the theology of Christ-centered singleness and celibacy.
