Robert C. Holland Professor of Old Testament, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

The Rev. Dr. Jerome Creach is Robert C. Holland* professor of Old Testament. Before joining the faculty of Pittsburgh Seminary in 2000, he taught at Barton College (1994-2000), the College of William & Mary (1993-94), Randolph-Macon College (1993), and the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (1992-93). Dr. Creach earned his doctorate at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia (now Union-PSCE) where he studied with James Luther Mays. Prior to his study at Union, he earned his M.Div. and Th.M. (in Systematic Theology) degrees at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Creach is interested in Old Testament theology and the appropriation of the Bible to the life of the church. Psalms and Prophets are his primary areas of research. He has published three books (listed below) and numerous articles and reviews in journals for biblical studies. He is currently writing a book on the theology of the Psalter. A minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Creach has served congregations in Virginia and North Carolina and preaches and teaches regularly in churches in the Pittsburgh area.

Creach’s publications include The Destiny of the Righteous in the Psalms (Chalice Press, 2008), Joshua: Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching (WJK 2003), Psalms Interpretation Bible Studies (Geneva 1999), and Yahweh as Refuge and the Editing of the Hebrew Psalter (Sheffield Academic Press 1996).

He is married to Page L. D. Creach, also a minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). They have two children, Adair and Davis.

*Robert C. Holland was pastor of Shadyside Presbyterian Church from 1972 until his death in 1983. Holland was elected to the Board of Directors of Pittsburgh Seminary in 1976; he served as chairperson from 1981-1983. Inspired by his deep commitment to the scriptures, Henrietta Campbell, a member at Shadyside Presbyterian, established the Robert C. Holland Chair as an appropriate memorial to his ministry.
