John W. Daniels, Jr. (Jack): Home

Dr. Jack Daniels

I'm here and happy to meet you, and then help you make your way successfully through to your Bachelor's degree here at Flagler College, and beyond that, too!

Contact me anytime via email (best!) or phone (819-6330 - next best) and come by a see me. We can talk about anything you like, and even, of course, research - a research paper you're working on - studying - life...anything!

Don't be shy - life is too short for that.

Best wishes,


For faculty, I offer the following:

  • Research instruction for classes in the subject areas of Youth Ministry, Religion, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Political Science, and Natural Sciences. Simply e-mail a copy of your course syllabus and a description of the kind instruction would best meet your students' learning needs.
  • Collaboration with the departmental faculty to develop the Library collection in the areas of Youth Ministry, Religion, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Political Science, and Natural Sciences. The collection will consist of print, audio/visual, e-book, databases, and other resources related to these subject areas.
  • Research assistance to departmental faculty. Feel free to call me at 819-6330, e-mail me, or stop by the Proctor Library anytime. I can be found on the Reference Desk or in my office - L-126, through the South-West corner door on the first floor, and down the hallway.

I hold the degrees of Doctor of Theology (D.Th.) in New Testament from the University of South Africa, both a Master of Arts (M.A.T.S.) and a Master of Theology (Th.M.) from Columbia Theological Seminary, and a Master of Library and Information Science (M.L.I.S.) from Florida State University.

My research interests include Teaching & Learning, New Testament & Early Christian Origins, Youth Ministry and Culture, and the intersection between "youth" and "information" culture.

I am the author of Gossip in John's Gospel and the Social Processing of Jesus' Identity in The Journal of Early Christian History (Vol.1 Iss. 2, 2011), Gossip in the New Testament published in Biblical Theology Bulletin (42.4, 2012), and Gossiping Jesus: The Social Processing of Jesus in John's Gospel published by Wipf & Stock's imprint PICKWICK Publications.





I enjoy playing guitar, fiddling on a violin, vegetarian cuisine, and cycling...

But most of all, surfing in the Mother Ocean - especially with my wife Marcia.
