Dr. Hall came to teach Old Testament and Hebrew at LCS in 1986. Prior to that he had taught at Kentucky Christian College, Grayson, Ky for 14 years in Old Testament and Biblical Theology. The last five years at KCC he also served as Academic Dean. While in Kentucky Dr. Hall led a student oriented prison ministry for three years, served as interim minister in two different churches, and served the local church as Sunday School teacher, youth sponsor and deacon.

Since coming to Lincoln Dr. Hall has served the local church as Sunday School teacher and elder. He has also written essays and Sunday School lessons for Standard Publishing, contributed several articles to the reference work, The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis, written the commentary on Deuteronomy for the NIV Commentary series for College Press, contributed to Old Testament Introduction for College Press, published several essays and articles, and read several papers at professional meetings. He has traveled in Europe, Greece, Israel, Turkey and taught for a term at Springdale College in England.

Dr. Hall was drawn to the Old Testament through the inspiration of a favorite college professor. He is concerned about its relative neglect in the churches and is dedicated to its recovery for the Christian. He is convinced that the New Testament cannot be understood without an extensive knowledge of the Old Testament. Every page of the New Testament contains quotes or allusions to the Old. The New Testament writers also assume as true much of what the Old Testament teaches about God, the world, mankind, sin and God’s plan for redeeming the world. Therefore, it is crucial that the Christian know these things as well. The proper understanding of the Old Testament is vital to a healthy church. From it we learn who the Father of Jesus Christ is.

Dr. Hall is married to Cheryl Thompson Hall, a graduate of Lincoln Christian College and Morehead State University. She specialized in the teaching of art and doing art therapy. They have two children, Stephanie and Nathan. The Halls enjoy traveling and family outings. Gary prefers using some of his leisure time for gardening, exercising, and playing tennis.
