Andrew Glicksman, Ph.D.

Dr. Andrew Glicksman received his doctoral degree in Biblical Studies from The Catholic University of America in 2010. He has taught courses in Scripture and biblical Hebrew at the University of Dallas since 2008. He is interested in both Old and New Testament exegesis but specializes in the study of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, with a further focus in Wisdom Literature. He wrote his dissertation on the Wisdom of Solomon (the youngest book of the Catholic Old Testament), and much of his research has been devoted to better understanding the way in which this deuterocanonical text reinterprets earlier parts of Scripture. He has visited various regions in the Middle East and, in 2007, served as a square-supervisor on the Wadi-ath Thamad Excavation Project in Jordan.
