Steven C. Hunter (Ph.D., Faulkner University) is a man of letters from Nashville, TN but residing in Murray, KY. He is preaching minister at the Glendale Road Church of Christ and has published in peer-reviewed journals, contributed to multi-author volumes on the scholarly and popular level, and written books for Start2Finish Publications (Dallas, TX). He has an eclectic range of interests, mostly in history. His areas of research are ancient near-eastern studies, classics, sacred theology, early church history, patristics, and antebellum America.
He’s is one-quarter Choctaw, from the Mississippi Band of Choctaw and descends from one of the last great chiefs of the Choctaw, Moshulatubbee (“Determined to Kill”). His fifth-great grandfather led thousands of Choctaw from Mississippi to the Indian Territory (Oklahoma) in the Trail of Tears.
His surname is Scottish, from Hunterston in Ayrshire, Scotland. Shortly after the Jacobean Revolt, his ancestors boarded a ship and traveled to the New World to make a new life for themselves. His mother’s maiden name, Cleghorn, is also of Scottish derivation. It would be fair to say that he’s of Scottish and Choctaw blood, two lineages of which he is proud.
