Dr. Steve Miller

Associate Dean of Doctoral Programs, Chairman and Professor, Department of Old Testament and Hebrew


Dr. Miller is a lifelong Southern Baptist. At age six, he received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at a church in Jackson, Tennessee. He earned a degree in Business Administration at Union University in Jackson, and it was there he met his wife, Paula. In 1973 while working as an insurance underwriter in Memphis, God called him into the gospel ministry. Dr. Miller earned both the ThM and PhD degrees at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. Before joining the Mid-America faculty in August 1982, he served as pastor of three Arkansas churches. While teaching at MABTS, Dr. Miller continues to preach and teach in local churches. He has been the interim pastor of over a dozen congregations.


Dr. Miller's two daughters are married, and he has three grandchildren. His parents and four brothers are faithful Southern Baptists. Two of his brothers are also in the ministry.


Dr. Miller is chairman of the Old Testament/Hebrew Department and is Associate Dean of Doctoral Programs. He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS), Near Eastern Archaeological Society, and Society of Biblical Literature. He has presented scholarly papers at both regional and national ETS meetings. In addition to many scholarly articles in journals and Bible dictionaries, he has authored two commentaries on the Book of Daniel (New American Commentary series and Shepherd's Notes series) and the Nahum-Malachi volume in the Holman Old Testament Commentary series. He is also a Bible translator for the Holman Christian Standard Bible (B&H Publishing) and wrote the Daniel study notes for the Apologetics Study Bible. Writings for LifeWay Christian Resources (SBC) include numerous articles in the Biblical Illustrator and several lesson series for the Sunday School curriculum. Other scholarly projects include leading groups to Israel, Egypt, Greece, and Italy (for which students received seminary course credit) and participating in an archaeological excavation at Gezer, Israel.


"I'm sure you would never guess this about me." In college I studied karate under a fifth degree black belt from South Korea and participated in karate demonstrations in the Jackson, TN area.
