    Dr. M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas)

    Dr. Carroll is the son of a Guatemalan mother and an American father, who himself was the son of Irish immigrants. Danny was raised bilingual and bicultural in Houston, Texas, and he spent many summers of his youth in Guatemala. Before returning to the U.S. in the summer of 1996, he was an Old Testament professor for 13 years at an interdenominational seminary in Guatemala City. He continues as adjunct professor there. His primary research interests are in the prophetic literature and Old Testament social ethics.
    Dr. Carroll has been involved in issues related to Hispanic immigration for many years and attends an Hispanic church. The fact that he is comfortable in both Hispanic and Anglo cultures helps Danny bring an irenic spirit and lots of personal experience to the immigration discussion.
    Dr. Carroll earned a PhD from the University of Sheffield, England, a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a BA from Rice University. He is Blanchard Professor of Old Testament in the Graduate School of Wheaton College. Before assuming his position at Wheaton College he was Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at Denver Seminary, where he founded a Spanish-language training program.

    About Maston Lectures

    The T. B. Maston Lectures in Christian Ethics are an annual lecture series presented by Logsdon

    Seminary and The Logsdon School of Theology of Hardin-Simmons University. These lectures seek to honor the legacy of Dr. T. B. Maston, longtime Professor of Christian Ethics and pioneering Baptist ethicist. Maston was known for his writing and teaching in the areas of biblical ethics, race relations, family life, the Christian and vocation, church and state, and character formation.

    The lectures have brought outstanding individuals to seminary, university, and the wider community and have addressed a wide range of ethical issues.
