Christopher D. Stanley is a recently retired Professor Emeritus at St. Bonaventure University in western New York, where he taught courses in biblical studies and the role of religion in contemporary society.

Dr. Stanley has written widely about the social world of early Christianity, including four authored books, three edited books, and dozens of articles in top international journals. He has presented papers and given lectures at conferences, universities, seminaries, and churches around the world, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Austria, Romania, England, Scotland, Ireland, and India. He is a member of the Studiorum Societas Novi Testamenti (SNTS), an elite international organization of New Testament scholars, and served as the founding chair for two ongoing sections of the Society of Biblical Literature.

In recent years Dr. Stanley has expanded his repertoire to include historical fiction, publishing the first two novels in a trilogy called "A Slave's Story" that takes readers into a neglected corner of the Roman world, first-century Asia Minor. The novels, titled "A Rooster for Asklepios" and "A Bull for Pluto," are available on along with several of his academic books. The first book is also available as an audiobook on, and the second one will be ready in Spring 2022. The third book in the trilogy, "A Ram for Mars," is currently in the early stages of production.
