Jeffrey M. Bradshaw is a senior research scientist at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) in Pensacola, Florida. His professional writings have explored a wide range of topics in human and machine intelligence. Jeff is the author of an extensive scholarly commentary on the book of Moses titled In God’s Image and Likeness (Eborn Books, 2010) and a shorter study, Temple Themes in the Book of Moses, that will appear later in 2010. The commentary has been praised by the eminent Old Testament scholar Margaret Barker as “remarkable,” by BYU Professor of Ancient Scripture S. Kent Brown as a “most interesting tapestry,” by BYU Professor of Ancient Scripture David R. Seely as being of “cosmic scope” with a “wealth of stunning artistic and literary images,” and by prominent LDS scientist David H. Bailey as a “uniquely modern and honest treatment.” Jeff has presented at Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research (FAIR) meetings in the United States, Germany, and France, and has published in the International Journal of Mormon Studies and Element: A Journal of Mormon Philosophy and Theology. His article on the Dura Europos Ezekiel mural as a witness of ancient Jewish mysteries was published in BYU Studies in April 2010. He writes a regular column for Meridian Magazine and also maintains a blog and RSS feed entitled “Temple Themes in the Scriptures.”
Jeff was a missionary in the Belgium-Brussels mission and has since served in a variety of Church capacities including early-morning seminary teacher, bishop, high councilor, stake presidency counselor, and temple ordinance worker. He and his wife Kathleen are the parents of four children, and the grandparents of four.
