D. Andrew Kille was born January 6, 1950 in Ventura, California. He attended Ojai Valley School and The Thacher School before entering Stanford University. He graduated in 1971 with a degree in English Literature, and attended seminary at the American Baptist Seminary of the West in Berkeley.

He served on the staff of the Grace Baptist Church in San Jose, California for fifteen years, before returning to school. He received the first Ph.D. granted in psychological biblical criticism from the Graduate Theological Union in 1997. His interest in psychology and the Bible began during his years as a pastor and was nurtured through the work of Morton Kelsey, John Sanford, Elizabeth Howes and the Guild for Psychological Studies, and Carl Jung. He has contributed to several volumes of psychological biblical criticism, and is the author of Psychological Biblical Criticism (Fortress Press, 2001 ISBN 9780800632465) in the Guides to Biblical Scholarship series and co-editor with Wayne G. Rollins of Psychological Insight into the Bible: Texts and Readings (Wm. B. Eerdmans, 2007 ISBN 9780802841551).

Dr. Kille has served as both co-Chair and Chair of the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section[1] of the Society of Biblical Literature. In 2007, he became the editor of The Bible Workbench, a study resource on the Bible rooted in a psychologically informed approach.[2]

In addition to his work in psychological biblical criticism, Dr. Kille has been active for over 30 years in interfaith dialogue. He is founder and director of Interfaith Space[3] in San Jose, California, and also serves as Editor of Bay Area Interfaith Connect, the newsletter of the Interfaith Center at the Presidio[4] in San Francisco, California.
