Convenient, flexible, biblical education within a global community context.
Dr. Scott Swain joined the faculty of RTS-Orlando in 2006 and serves as Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Academic Dean of the Orlando campus. He teaches core courses related to systematic theology and biblical interpretation.
Prior to joining RTS, Dr. Swain taught theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois and served on the faculty of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
In his teaching and research, Dr. Swain seeks to retrieve the riches of patristic, medieval, and Reformation patterns of biblical interpretation and theologizing for the sake of the contemporary church's renewal according to the Word of God. With Michael Allen, he edits two series that seek to embody a theology of "renewal through retrieval": Zondervan Academic's New Studies in Dogmatics and T & T Clark's International Theological Commentary. Dr. Swain has particular interest in the doctrine of God and the theological interpretation of Scripture. He is currently working on a book about the divine names.
Dr. Swain is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. He and his wife, Leigh, have four children.
