The Earl Palmer Collection in the Theological Commons

Jul 26, 2019

This new featured collection represents a collaboration between Earl Palmer Ministries and Princeton Theological Seminary. This collection contains audio and video recordings and selected writings by Rev. Earl Palmer, an alumnus and former member of the Board of Trustees of Princeton Theological Seminary.

Rev. Earl Palmer has served in pastoral ministries at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Union Church in Manila, First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, and The National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. He has a commitment to expositional preaching of biblical texts. He has a strong interest in pursuing theological themes that are present in classic and contemporary literature, with particular focus on such authors as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth. He is one of the most gifted teachers of the Bible, with a unique style that unfolds the text and allows the listener to make great discoveries. Earl Palmer Ministries exists so that this teacher can keep sharing his gift with the world.
