Dr. Cabal’s research interests focus on philosophy of religion, faith and science, and apologetics. A professed atheist in high school, Ted Cabal was radically converted after reading the New Testament to debunk the claims of Jesus. Following his conversion, Cabal became a street evangelist, church planter, and pastor.

Previously, Dr. Cabal has taught at Dallas Baptist University, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, and The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (twice). In 2001, Cabal was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (a “blood cancer”) and given three years to live. After a decade of treatments, the cancer surprisingly became inactive.

Dr. Cabal has authored numerous articles and book chapters on philosophy of religion and apologetics and serves as the general editor of The Apologetics Study Bible. His recent book, Controversy of the Ages, deals with science issues facing Christians today. Ted and his wife, Cheri, have three sons and eight grandchildren. He is an avid guitar player.

Dr. Cabal desires his students to encounter Christ as he did, a person more real and alive to him than his own life.
