Dr. Alexander Negrov’s scholarly interests and expertise are in the history of Biblical hermeneutics, New Testament exegesis, and the cultural contextualization of the Bible – particularly in the areas of spiritual formation and leadership development. Dr. Negrov is especially interested in religious and cultural studies related to pre-communist and post-communist societies in the Russian Federation and in exploring the relevance of moral and ethical issues for perpetuating and sustaining civil society, democratic institutions and a market economy.
