Daniel B. Wallace

Prof. Wallace is a fourth-generation Californian, former body surfer, and current nerd. He began to learn Greek as a teenager because of a crisis of faith. What started out as a personal quest 49 years ago has become a settled conviction: the apostolic witness to Jesus Christ is thoroughly reliable. Dr. Wallace has his undergraduate degree from Biola, his ThM and PhD from DTS, and has done post-doctoral studies at several other prestigious universities, such as Cambridge. Dr. Wallace has been on faculty at Dallas Seminary for thirty-three years, and is also the founder and Executive Director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts which is the world’s leading institute in digitizing Greek New Testament manuscripts. In his travels, Dr. Wallace and the CSNTM staff have discovered nearly 100 New Testament manuscripts throughout the world. Prof. Wallace has also written, edited, or contributed to more than three dozen books including a short introduction to Greek grammar. Presently, he’s working on an equally short introduction to New Testament textual criticism. Dr. Wallace and his bride of 44 years, Pati, have four sons – Noah, Benjamin, Andrew, and Zachary. They also have three daughters-in-law, three granddaughters, one grandson, and one Labrador named Porter.
