Richard L. Pratt Jr. (Th.D., Harvard University) is President and Founder of Third Millennium Ministries, an organization formed in 1997 to provide free biblical education “for the world.” Many around the world have benefitted from his decades of cognitively stimulating and incisive teaching, ministry, and scholarship. He is Adjunct Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando; an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America; and the author of a number of books, including Every Thought Captive: A Study Manual for the Defense of Christian Truth

This volume in honor of Richard broadly covers his lifelong themes of biblical studies, theological studies, hermeneutics, the kingdom of God, ministry training, missions, evangelism, and biblical education for the world.

“At the end of my first semester of seminary, I was overwhelmed with all the work I needed to get done. So when Richard Pratt offered my class the option of a fasting-and-prayer retreat instead of a final, I signed up, thinking it was an easy way to get out of taking an exam. Instead, I found the retreat to be just what my anxious heart needed. That retreat was just one of the many things Richard used to teach me through his life and ministry that continue to impact my own life and ministry. I am extremely thankful for Richard and his influence in my life.”

—Elliott Grudem, Lead Pastor, Leadership Development and Church Planting, Vintage Church, Raleigh, NC

“For—and around—the world, indeed! Richard has traversed God’s Word and God’s World in pursuit of God’s call to him to know, teach, and apply the whole Bible to all of life. Many Christians in our generation have studied, preached, and gone out locally and far away. But few have put the triad together and with such clarity and zeal. Please read these chapters and go and do likewise.”

—Andrew Peterson, President, Reformed Theological Seminary Global Campus

“Having known Richard since our Covenant College days, and having benefited from his friendship and ministry throughout the years, I count it a privilege to endorse this volume. Richard’s varied vocations as Old Testament professor, conference speaker, pastor, and head of the extraordinary missionary endeavor of Third Millennium are unified by his singular passion of exalting Christ and his gospel before the nations by multiplying equipped indigenous leaders for our Lord’s church. The reader is in for an inspiring journey through each chapter and page.”

—Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church
