Mark Boda (Ph.D., Cambridge University) is Professor of Old Testament at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario. Mark joined the College in 2003 after teaching for nine years at Canadian Theological Seminary.

Key areas of interest include prayer and penitence in the Old Testament and Christian Theology and Babylonian and Persian Period Hebrew Books and History (Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Lamentations, Jeremiah).
