About

Collin Cornell is Assistant Professor of Bible and Mission at Fuller Theological Seminary, stationed to Fuller’s Texas campus. Collin teaches in Old Testament and missiological hermeneutics, and his research falls into history of religions, biblical theology, including biblical theology of mission, as well as race, colonialism, and ecology. Collin welcomes inquiries from prospective students and scholarly collaborators in any of these areas.

Collin’s academic experience before joining Fuller in 2023 ranged widely: as visiting faculty at the University of the South (Sewanee), Duke Divinity School, and Candler School of Theology, Collin led introductory Old Testament and New Testament classes, instructed all three biblical languages, and developed electives and short courses from preaching to eco-theology. Collin also managed Sewanee’s Center for Religion and Environment, coordinated Sewanee’s Indigenous Engagement Initiative, and acted as academic dean of the Stevenson School for Ministry, a local formation school of the Episcopal Church.

Collin is author of two books from Cambridge University Press: Divine Aggression in Psalms and Inscriptions (2021) and Monotheism and Divine Aggression (in production). Collin edited one volume entitled Divine Doppelgängers: YHWH’s Ancient Look-Alikes (Penn State University Press, 2020) and co-edited another volume of essays by Brent A. Strawn, The Incomparable God: Readings in Biblical Theology (Eerdmans, 2023). Collin also co-translated a book by the Dutch theologian and antifascist K.H. Miskotte, Biblical ABCs: The Basics of Christian Resistance (Lexington Books, 2021). Collin’s two current book projects engage the religions of the Hellenistic Levant and Bible and mission, respectively.
