Another course that has proved to be an important part of our biblical studies program is what I call "The Unity of the Bible." We survey the unfolding of biblical revelation in its historical context, resulting in a broad overview of the biblical message of "salvation history." Key themes include covenant, the people of God, kingdom of God, and redemption. Appropriate critical issues are considered, but the focus is on the unfolding of the biblical story in its own historical and literary contexts. The goal is to help students be able to read, preach, and teach comfortably and sensibly from within most any part of the Bible, being sensitive both to historical and literary contexts.
Courses I teach: (More information)
- Principles of Bible Study I (BINT500)

In all my courses my aim is to inspire students to:
- think for themselves,
- be expectantly open to the Spirit of God, while integrating the spiritual
dimension of faith with learning
- love learning for the glory of God.
