Whether you’ve been a believer for a few days or for many years, you’ve likely come across a sermon, video, or other resource that originated with the ministry of Tony Evans.
Who is Tony Evans?
Dr. Tony Evans is the founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, founder and president of The Urban Alternative, former chaplain of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, and author of over 100 books, booklets, and Bible studies. His radio broadcast, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, can be heard daily on more than 1,400 U.S. outlets and in more than 130 countries.
The first African American to earn a doctorate of theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, he has been named one of the 12 Most Effective Preachers in the English-Speaking World by Baylor University. He launched the Tony Evans Training Center in 2017, an online learning platform providing quality seminary-style courses for a fraction of the cost to any person in any place. The goal of the center is to increase Bible literacy not only for lay people but also for those Christian leaders who cannot afford nor find the time for formal ongoing education.
Dr. Tony Evans was married to his late wife Lois for nearly 50 years. They are the proud parents of four, grandparents of thirteen and great-grandparents of two.
What has he recently released?
Dr. Evans holds the honor of writing and publishing the first full-Bible commentary and study Bible by an African American.
The CSB team shares: “The Tony Evans Study Bible includes extensive study notes and other ancillary resources carefully crafted and curated by Dr. Tony Evans as General Editor and adapted from his sermons, teachings, and writings. These features are strategically placed alongside the biblical text to explain God’s Word in a fresh way. Applying these truths will empower readers to have transformed lives that then transfer the values of the kingdom of God to others.”
