Dr. Todd Brenneman has been selected as the dean of the V.P. Black College of Biblical Studies at Faulkner University. He succeeds Dr. Scott Gleaves, who stepped down from the dean’s position at the end of the spring 2021 semester.
“I am excited for this new opportunity. The college is a vital part of Faulkner University’s aspiration to be a leading Christian university. I see this as a great challenge filled with tremendous opportunity,” said Brenneman.
Brenneman previously served as undergraduate department chair of Bible and professor of Christian history in the college and the Kearley Graduate School of Theology. He received a master’s degree in Christianity from Harding University Graduate School of Religion (now Harding School of Theology) and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in American religious history from Florida State University.
Brenneman is also the author of Homespun Gospel: The Triumph of Sentimentality in American Evangelicalism, and has written book chapters on children and religion, as well as multiple book reviews for journals.
