Rev. Dr. John Holbert
We welcome our own John Holbert to our pulpit. Professor Emeritus of Homiletics at Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, John became a part of Westwood Church when he and Diana retired to Los Angeles, and we are grateful for the ways he shares his gifts in preaching and Hebrew Bible scholarship with our congregation. John first joined the Perkins faculty in 1979 as a teacher of Old Testament. He began to teach preaching in 1984 and was named to the Perkins Chair in Homiletics in 1997. He has written extensively in his field, has preached and lectured throughout the world, and has written and sung opera. He shared scripture commentary and thoughts regularly on his blog, The Peripatetic Preacher.
