Dr. Brian Peterson, associate professor of Old Testament, has been named the recipient of Lee University’s 2018 Excellence in Scholarship Award.

The winner of this award is chosen each year by the Faculty Scholarship and Research Committee. Lee President Dr. Paul Conn officially recognized Peterson for this award during spring commencement.

Dr. Peterson joined the Lee University School of Religion faculty in 2011. Prior to this, he taught adjunct courses in a number of venues in Toronto; taught courses at the Gambia Theological Institute in Gambia, West Africa; and spent a year as an assistant professor of Old Testament at Prairie Bible College in Alberta, Canada.

In following his passion of combining biblical narrative with historical and archaeological records, each summer since 2011, Dr.

Peterson has taken part in archaeological digs in Israel.

“His large amount of publications on his archaeological findings made him the perfect candidate for the Excellence in Scholarship Award,” said Dr. Conn.  

Dr. Peterson received his Doctor of Philosophy from Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto, his Master of Arts from Beeson Divinity School, a Master of Theological Studies from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his bachelor’s degree from Zion Bible College.

The Excellence in Scholarship Award is one of three faculty excellence awards recognizing teaching, scholarship, and advising. They are considered the highest honors bestowed on Lee faculty each year.
