Daniel Baird Wallace is an American professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the founder and executive director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, the purpose of, digitizing all known Greek manuscripts of the New Testament via digital photographs. Wallace was born June 1952, in California, he earned his B. A. from Biola University, his Th. M. and Ph. D. in New Testament studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. He pursued postdoctoral studies in a variety of places, including in Cambridge at Tyndale House, Christ's College, Clare College, Westminster College, in Germany at the Institute for New Testament Textual Research, University of Tübingen, the Bavarian State Library. Wallace began his academic career teaching at Dallas Seminary from 1979 until 1981 and at Grace Theological Seminary from 1981 until 1983, before returning to Dallas where he has been tenured since 1995, he published his first edition of Greek Grammar Beyond The Basics in 1996.
It has since become a standard work in the field in the US. Two-thirds of schools that teach the subject use the textbook, he served as senior New Testament editor for the NET Bible and has founded the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts. In 2016 he was the president of the Evangelical Theological Society. Wallace, along with DTS colleague Darrell L. Bock, has been an outspoken critic of the alleged "popular culture" quest to discredit conservative evangelical views of Jesus—including the writings of Elaine Pagels and Bart Ehrman, he is a contributor to a website that critiques the writings of Bart Ehrman. Wallace critiqued Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus: The Story of Who Changed the Bible and Why for misrepresenting held views of textual criticism in Ehrman's view of the "orthodox corruption of Scripture." Wallace and Ehrman dialogued at the Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum in April 2008. In 2012 Wallace claimed that a identified papyrus fragment of the Gospel of Mark had been definitively dated by a leading paleographer to the late first century, would shortly be published by E.
J. Brill; the fragment might be the earliest surviving Christian text. This claim resulted in widespread speculation on social media and in the press as to the fragment's content and date, which Wallace felt inhibited from correcting due to a Non-disclosure agreement that he entered into in October 2012; the fragment, designated Papyrus 137 and subsequently dated by its editors to the 2nd or earlier 3rd century, was published in 2018, in the series of Oxyrhynchus Papyri LXXXIII.

Daniel Wallace (author)
Daniel Wallace is an American author. He is best known for his 1998 novel Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, his other books include Ray in The Watermelon King. His stories have been published in a number of anthologies and magazines, including The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror. Wallace was born in Birmingham, he has three sisters, he attended Emory University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying English and philosophy. His first job was as a veterinary assistant cleaning cages. Wallace did not graduate from college until May 2008, instead taking a job with a trading company in Nagoya, Japan, he lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with his wife and son. Wallace states, of his childhood, that "I was average in every way. My childhood was the most uneventful part of my life, I think." He reports, that there was friction within his family, as in an interview he states: My father wanted me to work with him in his company, an import/export firm, to that end I lived in Japan for a couple of years.
But it didn’t work out. It didn’t make me happy and the truth is I wasn’t that good at it. I wouldn’t have been a good businessman. I tried. So I quit – or, if he were alive and you could ask him, fired – and started writing, he wasn’t for it but it’s hard to support a child in an endeavor for which he has shown no promise. My mother loved the idea of it because being a writer is such a romantic idea and because it hurt my father, if he was hurt she was happy. After returning to Chapel Hill, Wallace worked for thirteen years in a bookstore and as an illustrator, where he designed greeting cards and refrigerator magnets. A running motif in his works are glass eyes, he continued to live in Chapel Hill with his wife, Laura, a social worker, their son, Henry. Of his political beliefs, Wallace has stated, "It is fair to say. Far left." Wallace claims he is an agnostic in terms of religious beliefs, stating: I think a lot of people default to Jesus when something inexplicable happens. I write things I didn’t know I was capable of writing, sometimes that feels like magic.
It isn’t. A similar thing happens when a tornado blows someone’s house away, but their cat is found unscathed in an oak tree: God must have been looking out for Pooky. We're hard-wired to do this, I think. Before Wallace's most famous book Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions was accepted for publication, he wrote five novels which were rejected by publishers. Since his books have been translated into 18 languages, while Big Fish was made into a film by Tim Burton. In a 2011 article for Pure Movies, he wrote about how absurd he found it that Big Fish was the book, adapted into a film when all his others have clearer narrative structures, his other books include Ray in Reverse, The Watermelon King, Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician. While his short stories have been published in a number of anthologies and magazines, including The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror. Wallace says he tries to write everything he can, but focuses on novels and screenplays. Wallace believes that "art is a distillation of experience."
He believes that "writing requires only a pen and paper, not paint, canvases, nor expensive film or photographic equipment, so it’s seen as something ‘anyone can do.’"Of his early writings, Wallace claims: I thought I was a much better writer than I do now. I loved the stories I was coming up with, was amazed I could put enough sentences together to make a paragraph, it was like magic. I sound like I’m making fun of myself but I’m not. If a writer writes I was a writer. I couldn’t see far beyond that though; the pure pleasure of invention, of making stuff up, clouded over everything else. I couldn’t tell the difference between a good story and a good story told well. I wrote three hundred pages about a pair of billionaire twins, each weighing just over 500 pounds, who ‘rent’ the mistress of one of their friends. What did I think was going to come of that? Nothing much did, and I wrote a few other books as promising. As I wrote I was learning to write and I was learning what not to write as well. I finally figured out that I was writing the kind of books I thought other people wanted to read, not the kind I wanted to write.
That’s when Big Fish happened, why it was a breakthrough for me. As a child he loved the science fiction novel Dune, by Frank Herbert. Wallace lists his favorite writers as Franz Kafka, Vladimir Nabokov, Italo Calvino, Kurt Vonnegut, William Faulkner. Wallace loves the novels Mrs. Bridge and Mr Bridge by Evan S. Connell. Wallace was awarded the Harper Lee Award for Alabama's Distinguished Writer of the Year in 2019. Wallace is a professor and lecturer in the English Department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. About his career as a teacher, Wallace has stated: Teaching undergraduates is a much different than teaching graduate or post-graduate students. My job is to foster an appreciation for the art of writing. Showing a student what’s behind the curtain, so he’ll at least be able to see and appreciate these things when he reads a book. If he chooses to write himself – and of course few undergraduates pursue writing beyond this level – he knows some of the basic devices used to creating a compelling story.
Does a student leave our program homogenized: if that were something we wanted to do, we just don’t have them long eno
