On this blog Janet and I will share our ongoing work on cultural critique, God’s engagement with his world, the nature and function of Scripture, OT & NT interpretation, biblical theology, philosophical hermeneutics, aesthetics, and Christian ethics.
To this work I bring my training in ancient Near Eastern cultural background and Old Testament exegesis and theology. My special interests are Creation theology, Wisdom literature of the OT, the Psalms, prophetic theology, and apocalyptic. Janet brings training in intellectual history spanning the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and modern eras, Greco-Roman cultural and historical backgrounds of the New Testament, the theology of the Gospels (especially Luke), and biblical-theological ethics.
We have taught in undergraduate and graduate programs (Christian and state-universities) for over 25 years. We have spoken to adult groups in a variety of venues in 12 states and 3 continents. If you are looking for knowledgeable and engaging presenters for church adult classes, adult retreats, or biblical seminars, we would be delighted to talk with you about meeting your needs.
