Dr. Timothy E. Saleska is professor of Exegetical Theology and Dean of Ministerial Formation at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Tim has been a faculty member since 1997, having been named dean of Ministerial Formation in 2011. Tim teaches Hebrew and various Old Testa-ment exegetical courses. For the past ten years, Tim has also served as the coach of the Preachers, the Seminary’s varsity basketball team. Tim's special area of research is biblical poetry and specifically the book of Psalms. He is especially inter-ested in how Christians read and meditate on the Psalms and in exploring the history of their interpreta-tion in the Church. Tim has published a downloadable bible study on the Psalms (available at CPH), and his commentary on Psalms 1-50 for the Concordia Com-mentary Series has been completed and is ready to undergo the final editing. Before joining the Seminary, Tim served as the pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Cincinnati (1982-95) and St. Paul Lutheran Church in Napoleon, Ohio (1995-97). He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary (1982).
