Millard Erickson (born 1932) is Distinguished Professor of Theology at Western Seminary, Portland, and the author of the widely acclaimed systematics work Christian Theology along with more than twenty other books. He was professor of theology and academic dean at Bethel Seminary for many years. He earned a B.A. from the University of Minnesota, a B.D. from Northern Baptist Seminary, an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. from Northwestern University.

Erickson, an ordained Baptist minister, is a fairly conservative evangelical and only moderately Calvinistic. He is accommodating of alternate views on a number of issues, but one of the most vocal opponents of the most liberal side of evangelicalism. As a member of Christians for Biblical Equality, he is an egalitarian. Erickson is also a prominent critic of open theism and postmodernism.
