Robin Plant

"I love the Old Testament. Helping future ministers to see the riches it holds for the Church is an immense privilege and responsibility."

Robin joined St Augustine’s as a sessional tutor in 2012.  He teaches Introduction to the Old Testament, and occasionally co-teaches other modules in Biblical Studies. Robin was a Baptist youth pastor in Stevenage from 1989-93, and then worked in Kazakhstan and Romania, preaching and teaching in local churches. From 2010 to 2012 he was Director of Graduate Studies at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Osijek, Croatia, and since 2016 has taught Old Testament at Canterbury Christ Church University. His main academic interests are the Old Testament prophets, Wisdom literature, Gospel of John and eco-theology.

Robin is married and lives in Ramsgate. He teaches English at a nearby language school.  He has a lifelong passion for snakes, and is a keen weather-watcher.
