Visiting Scholars

Bernard Palmer


Bernard Palmer was awarded an open scholarship to the Royal London Medical School for clinical training. He undertook his surgical training in major London hospitals and took the exams to be both a physician and a general surgeon. He was a senior registrar at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London and during this time performed research in tumor immunology at the Institute of Cancer Research. In 1983 he was appointed consultant surgeon at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage where he worked until he retired. He was a general surgeon with major interests in surgical oncology and gastrointestinal surgery. He wrote many medical papers.

Dr. Palmer became a convinced Christian as an undergraduate at Cambridge and has been a Bible teacher since then. He has been active in the Christian Medical Fellowship and has been one of their trustees for many years. He is the author of Cure for Life, which has been translated into many languages. This book was originally written for his patients as an answer for their questions about the purpose of life, but has since found a worldwide niche and has been translated into many languages. In 2000, Bernard was asked to help found Christchurch Baldock, where he regularly teaches.

Bernard is a popular speaker in universities and churches both at home (UK) and overseas. He has written widely on the evidence for the Christian faith and what being a Christian means.
