Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company announced June 18 the hiring of Andrew Knapp as development editor in biblical studies.
Knapp brings both practical knowledge and experience to his new position at Eerdmans, having working most recently as acquisitions editor and marketing director at Eisenbrauns, an international academic publisher specializing in the ancient Near East and biblical studies. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Seattle Pacific University, a master of theological studies from the University of Notre Dame and a doctorate in Near Eastern Studies with a concentration in Hebrew Bible from Johns Hopkins University. He is also proficient in a wide variety of ancient languages, and his forthcoming book, Royal Apologetic in the Ancient Near East, is to be published by SBL Press.
“I have been fascinated by the biblical story all my life, and this fascination was nurtured by excellent teachers during my undergraduate and graduate training," said Knapp. "I look forward to using my expertise to contribute to Eerdmans’ renowned catalogue in biblical studies.”
“I am delighted to welcome Andrew to Eerdmans,” said David Bratt, executive editor. “His background and training make him the ideal candidate to help us continue and build on our long tradition of publishing in biblical studies. We look forward to his being a vital part of our editorial team for years to come.”
