Since July, 2014, I have been serving as Dean of the Faculty. My old web-page (with links to my classes) can be found here.

For fall 2015, I will be teaching IC230AP, "Bikes, A Solution for the Future" for transfer students at Illinois College. The course calendar can be read here.

My academic training and dissertation focused on Second-Temple Judaism (Judaism from around 538 BCE - 70 CE).  

More recently -- driven by the courses I've been teaching -- I've developed an interest in biblical themes in popular culture, especially Satan. For information on my research and publications, look at my Curriculum Vitae (Adobe Acrobat requried).

I am also interested in developing new teaching methods. In 2005, I published Introducing the Bible: An Active Learning Approach.

Currently, I am working on developing modules for the Reacting to the Past series.
