I have written a fair amount of material that is available on the Web. From this page you can navigate to other pages that contain links to all of these articles.
Since my field of study is the New Testament, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most of these articles take the Bible as their point of departure. Whether I’m writing for pastors, churchgoers, or others who are interested in the Bible and how it is interpreted, I try to help readers consider how best to make sense of biblical texts. This involves more than asking what the Bible meant “back then.” It also requires some imagination, to consider how the Bible can still speak to our lives (and our neighbors’ lives) now.
Most of these articles are written with a broad audience in mind. By contrast, most of my more technical, academic writing is available only in printed form, so you’ll have to visit my Academic Info page or my Books page to learn where to locate that material.
On May 17, 2015, I was the faculty speaker at Luther Seminary’s 146th commencement. The text of my address is available here.
