John H. Walton (PhD, Hebrew Union College) is professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School, Illinois. His primary interest is in comparisons between the Old Testament and other Ancient Near East literature. Previously, he was professor of Old Testament at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago for twenty years.

Walton's career has been characterised by a passion to show students and readers the importance of learning the Bible: "I am saddened by how little exposure to, and understanding of, the Old Testament many Christians have, but I am passionate in doing whatever I can do to remedy this spiritual and theological loss."

Walton has published extensively, and some of his books include: The Lost World of Scripture (co-authored with D. Brent Sandy), The Lost World of Genesis One, Ancient Near Eastern Thought and the Old Testament, The Essential Bible Companion, Genesis (NIV Application Commentary) and The IVP Bible Background Commentary: Old Testament (with Victor H. Matthews and Mark W. Chavalas).

Walton's ministry also extends to church classes for all-age groups, high school Bible studies and adult Sunday school classes. John and his wife, Kim, live in Wheaton, Illinois, and have three adult children.WaltonFlood
