From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roger R. Nicole (born 1915) a native Swiss Reformed theologian and a Baptist, has long been regarded as one of the preeminent theologians in America. He is a Christian Egalitarian and Biblical Inerrantist.[1] He was an associate editor for the New Geneva Study Bible and assisted in the translation of the New International Version of the Bible. He was a founding member of both the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy and the Evangelical Theological Society, of which he is a past president. He holds a M.A. from Sorbonne, an S.T.M. and Th.D. from Gordon Divinity School, a Ph.D. from Harvard University, and a D.D. from Wheaton College.

He is Emeritus Professor of Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida.[2] He also is professor emeritus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. A devotee of mathematics and prolific writer, he has produced some 100 articles and contributed to fifty books and reference works. A bibliophile and distinguished librarian with a massive collection, he owns Calvin's Commentaries on the Gospels and Acts and other volumes from the 1500s and 1600s.[3] The library of Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando contains over twenty thousand of his personal books. They take up one half of the current library.

Respected internationally for his Christian statesmanship and scholarship, he is an acknowledged expert in the thought of Reformation leader John Calvin.[4] An avid philatelist, Nicole has a personal collection of approximately one million stamps. Evangelical commentator David F. Wells dedicated his 1985 release, Reformed Theology in America, simply “to Roger Nicole, a man of God.”[1] J. I. Packer has written this tribute to Nicole: "Awesome for brain power, learning and wisdom, endlessly patient and courteous in his gentle geniality, and beloved by a multitude as pastor, mentor and friend."[5]
