Meet the Professor: Dr. Adam Hensley

Concordia Seminary Dean of Theological Research and Publication Dr. Kevin Golden sits down with Dr. Adam Hensley, who recently joined the faculty as associate professor of Exegetical Theology. He previously served as professor at Australian Lutheran College (ALC) in North Adelaide, South Australia (SA), Australia, a college of the University of Divinity (2017-22), where he taught in the area of Old Testament studies and served as dean of chapel. Hensley earned a Graduate Certificate in Theological Education from the ALC (2018) and a Ph.D. in biblical studies from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis (2015). Hensley says he looks forward to helping instill a love of the Scriptures among the students he teaches. “I’ve found the love of the Scriptures, the better you get to know them, the deeper you imbibe them, the better you are formed for any kind of ministry, whether you are a pastor or deaconess or DCE [Director of Christian Education], whatever your vocation might be in the church,” he says in the video. “Nothing can replace that deep love for and thorough understanding of the Scriptures. It’s a lifelong journey isn’t it?” Learn more about Hensley.
