Bill Mounce

I am a writer living in Spokane Washington, and am the President of, a non-profit organization offering the finest in evangelical teaching to the world for free. I also coauthor Bill and Bob's Blog at, a blog focused on issues of translation geared for second year Greek students.

Formerly I was the preaching pastor at a church in Spokane, and before that a professor of New Testament and Director of the Greek Program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a professor of New Testament at Azusa Pacific University. I specialize in the Greek language in both my writing and teaching, and am currently involved in writing projects that bring scholarship to the layperson, especially Bible study methods and theology. I am the New Testament chair of the English Standard Version translation of the Bible. Robin and I have been married for 25 years and have three children.
