Katherine Caldwell’s Testimony
Katherine Karavas Caldwell, author of “The Caldwell Commentary” series (now at 24 books), is an extraordinary teacher, writer, and founder of The Living Word Ministries (1987). She was raised on the northshore of Chicago, graduated from prestigious New Trier High School, earned her Bachelors’ (and part of her Master’s) degree in Teaching from the University of Illinois in Dekalb, and has lived in Pinehurst, NC since her marriage in 1975. Her ancestry stems from Corinth, Greece (attended Greek School in her childhood). Katherine came to Christ through the witness of a Messianic Jew, which is why her “life verse” is Romans 1:16 – not only is she unashamed of the Gospel, but it was literally “to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” in her life!
Mrs. Caldwell is the daughter of a WWII vet, the wife of a Navy Captain (pilot), and the mother of an F-35C pilot. She has three adult children, all married, and (so far) nine wonderful grandchildren (ages 15 years to 6 months). Mrs. Caldwell has been involved in teaching large Bible studies for 35+ years. Her teaching (and corresponding commentaries) include a 12-year harmonized study of Christ in the 4 gospels. She was personal friends with Dr. Lehman Strauss, Dr. John Whitcomb, and Dr. John Phillips, who all taught in person at her Bible Studies. Dr. Strauss gave her a great compliment, saying she was the best woman Bible teacher he ever heard.
