Bio: Dr. Kaminski created the acronym CASKET EMPTY as a way to help people better understand the Old Testament narrative and its culmination in the person of Jesus. While Christians are often more familiar with the New Testament, Dr. Kaminski believes that the Church desperately needs to renew its commitment to teach the Old Testament. Her CASKET Timeline enables people to see visually how the Old Testament story progresses through six major redemptive periods, enabling them to locate key people, events, and biblical books in their historical-redemptive context.

Dr. Kaminski teaches courses in Old Testament and Hebrew language at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Her dissertation in the book of Genesis has been published in the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series, From Noah to Israel: Realization of the Primaeval Blessing after the Flood (London: T & T Clark, 2004). She has recently published a book on Noah entitled, Was Noah Good? Finding Favour in the Flood Narrative (Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies, Sup, 563; T&T Clark, 2014). Her research interests include exegesis and theology of Genesis, Old Testament covenants, and the meta-narrative of the Old Testament. She is currently writing a commentary on 1-2 Chronicles in Zondervan’s new Story of God Bible Commentary.

She is a member of the Institute for Biblical Research and the Society of Biblical Literature. She and her husband live in Salem, Massachusetts with their two sons.
