Peter CraigiePeter Campbell Craigie (18 August 1938 – 26 September 1985) was a British biblical scholar.
Craigie was born in Lancaster and grew up in Edinburgh. He studied successively at the Edinburgh Academy, the Prairie Bible Institute in Alberta, New College at the University of Edinburgh, St. John's College at the University of Durham, the University of Aberdeen, and McMaster University. He then taught at Carleton University, McMaster University, and the University of Calgary. He died as the result of a car crash in 1985.
Craigie wrote commentaries on ''Deuteronomy'', ''Ezekiel'', the Twelve Prophets, and Psalms 1 – 50. He referred to his approach as "theological-historical" or "theological-scientific". Lyle Eslinger notes that Cragie's approach was "a melding of conservative theological interests and assumptions with the scientific methods of biblical criticism." Tremper Longman describes him as being "among the best of recent evangelical interpreters" as well as "an astute theologian and philologist".
In 1988, a ''Festschrift'' was published in his honour. ''Ascribe to the Lord: Biblical and Other Studies in Memory of Peter C. Craigie'' included contributions from R. K. Harrison, Kenneth Kitchen, Alan Millard, and Robert Polzin. The Canadian Society of Biblical Studies sponsors the biannual Craigie Lecture in his memory. Provided by Wikipedia
