Southern Hemisphere Scholars

Last week I was having coffee with a friend of mine who is beginning a new book project. It is in infancy, so I will not say more about it except this: he is hoping to do a multi-authored book that includes several biblical scholars from the southern hemisphere. The usual suspects are from Australia and South Africa. But if we were to bracket these countries, who is left?
Can anyone help me name a few biblical scholars who represent the southern hemisphere (sans the two countries just mentioned)? Surely there must be several!




  1. Although an Australian let me put in a word for New Zealand: Paul Trebilco at Otago; Tim Meadowcroft at Carey-Laidlaw; Tim Harris, formerly of Bishopdale College in NZ, now Assistant Bishop of Adelaide. There are others, just go to the websites of the above institutions and other.

  2. The two that immediately come to mind are Tim Bulkeley (formerly of Carey Baptist) and Mark Strom (formerly of Laidlaw).
