The Goldingay Bible Clinic is for our friends and students who want to muse about life and the Bible along with us. We will give you a glimpse into our personal life– we have lots of fun—and we want everyone to READ THE BIBLE, for themselves, with an open mind, asking quality questions.
Kathleen Scott Goldingay is a retired architect with a screenwriting certificate from UCLA. She received her Masters of Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2012. She writes novels, screenplays, and poetry. She has one grown daughter, Katie-Jay Scott Stauring, who with her husband Gabriel Stauring empowered and connected us with global communities in crises through the NGO they founded, i-ACT. Sadly Katie-Jay and Gabriel were killed in November 2021 in a traffic accident in Los Angeles. Their legacy in iACT continues.
Kathleen married Dr. John Goldingay, the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, in 2010. At the time, John was also Priest-in-Charge of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Pasadena, California.
We moved back to Oxford, UK, in April 2018. John is emeritus in both these positions and continues to teach for Fuller online. We have a new flat on the Castle Mill Stream, where we have retired to write.
John Goldingay studied theology at Oxford, has a PhD from the University of Nottingham and a DD from the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth. He was principal and professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at St. John’s Theological College in Nottingham, England before he moved to sunny California in 1997. John was married to Ann for 43 years and has two adult sons, Steven and Mark. Ann lived with MS for their entire marriage and passed away in 2009.
John says, “For me, being a professor was a subset of being a pastor.”
Kathleen and John often speak at Society of Biblical Literature Conferences. John is also a member of the Society for Old Testament Study, serves on the Task Force for Biblical Interpretation in the Anglican Communion, and the editorial board for the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies.
