James T. Dennison, Jr. is the editor of Kerux: The Journal of Northwest Theological Seminary and the author/editor of several books and numerous journal articles. His "awakening" to the Reformed faith came in 1960 while reading Milton's "Paradise Lost." At Geneva College, he studied Bible with Dr. J.G. Vos, son of Geerhardus. After a year in medical school, he enrolled in Pittsburgh Theological Seminary where he studied under John H. Gerstner. Sharon Rogers became his wife in 1966, an R.N. (maternity) in 1967 and the mother of his four children in the 1970's. It was while preaching through the gospel of John in 1972 that he discovered the biblical theology of Geerhardus Vos and his love of the centrality of Christ was wonderfully heightened.

In 1990, he began study in historical theology with Dr. Richard A. Muller at Fuller Seminary, Pasadena, CA. Scott worked as Dr. Muller's teaching and research assistant.
