Jeff was raised in western PA in a nominally Christian home and came to saving faith in Christ when he was fourteen years old. His life was turned upside down as he soon became deeply involved in the life of the church, receiving a call to preach at age sixteen. To this day his passion is preaching, and he uses his wide-ranging experience as a teacher, pastor, missionary, director, announcer, and consultant to equip others for more effective proclamation of the Word. He is the Robinson Professor of Preaching and Communication at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, MA. His books reflect his love of preaching and communication: Preaching with Variety, Devote Yourself to Public Reading of Scripture, Preaching As Reminding, and Preaching Narrative. Dr. Arthurs has been married for more than forty years and enjoys playing tennis and disc golf with his wife, Liz. They are the father of one son, Daniel.
