Mark Fairchild received his Ph.D. from Drew University in New Testament Studies with additional coursework at Princeton Theological Seminary and Union Theological Seminary. Dr. Fairchild is the chair of the Department of Bible and Religion at Huntington University. His primary interests involve research in ancient Anatolia, and he has visited over 250 ancient sites throughout Turkey and has taken over 200,000 high resolution photographs, many of which have been reproduced in various publications. In 1992, he collaborated with 11 other scholars at Yeshiva University, exploring the Greek encounter with Judaism during the Hellenistic Period. In 2002, he joined 20 other scholars at the University of Chicago to investigate societal transformations and the legitimization of power in the early Islamic states. Dr. Fairchild’s interest in ancient Greek, Jewish, Christian and Islamic relations continues today, and he is currently the Program Director for the Ephesus Meeting, an academic conference at the ancient site of Ephesus in Turkey. Recently, Dr. Fairchild was invited to address the Turkish Embassy in Washington D.C. and the World Affairs Council.
