For over 16 years, Dr. McDonald has enjoyed teaching at Texas Wesleyan. “I love teaching, and at Texas Wesleyan, we are allowed to be ourselves. There is a real sense of community among the teachers.”
With more than 15 years spent as a pastor, an expertise in early church history, and a contribution to the Historical Handbook of Major Biblical Interpreters, Dr. McDonald’s favorite class to teach is Introductions to the New Testament. “I’m a practicing Christian, and officially still a minister. I’m just at home with the New Testament.”
He believes in keeping a sense of humor in his classes. “I believe in serving, in seeing how many students can get through my classes, not how many can flunk. Education is so important; it should not be endurable, but enjoyable.”
