Kendra Haloviak Valentine, Ph.D., is professor of New Testament Studies in the H. M. S. Richards Divinity School at La Sierra University.  She earned bachelor’s degrees in Theology and English from Columbia Union College and a master’s in New Testament from Andrews University Theological Seminary.  Haloviak Valentine completed her doctorate in New Testament and Ethics at the Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley in 2002.

Haloviak Valentine has served as a pastor in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland, and taught at Adventist colleges and universities in the United States and Australia.  Through her experiences as a pastor and teacher, her interest in the book of Revelation grew.  She has presented over 40 seminars on the book of Revelation for clergy and lay audiences.

Haloviak Valentine has published in journals, magazines, and books.  Publications include “The Book of Revelation” in The Dictionary of Scripture and Ethics (2011), Signs to Life:  Reading and Responding to John’s Gospel (2013), Worlds at War, Nations in Song:  Dialogic Imagination and Moral Vision in the Hymns of the Book of Revelation (2015), and “Liberating Legion:  An Ecocritical, postcolonial reading of Mark 5:1-20,” in Ecotheology and Nonhuman Ethics in Society (2016).

Recent projects include an article on the tragedy of Waco twenty-five years later (2018), a paper on Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians presented at a theology conference in the Philippines (2019) at the Adventist International Institute for Advanced Studies (AIIAS), and an exploration of “truth” in John 19 presented to the Society of Adventist Philosophers (November, 2019).  A sabbatical to Australia, Thailand and Cambodia included collecting over 120 surveys on how people read the gospel of Mark.  She is currently working on a book that evaluates and reflects on this research.
