Profile

I have a ThD in Theology and taught at Concordia  from 1994-2022. My area of research is Roman and Late Antique archaeology of the Levant. I was director of the Northeast Insulae Project at Hippos of the Decapolis from 2002-2021 in partnership with the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa.

In retirement…

Hippos Palaistinēs

Although I do not anticipate returning to the field, I still have much to write about from my twenty years working on Hippos .. a revised final report, an article for ARAM, additional details and models for the website, perhaps even a book on Christianity at Hippos.

I continue to follow the work at Hippos with great interest and look forward to visiting again soon.

A new way to teach

After teaching for 28 years, I am leveraging my experience to build a hybrid tutorial site on topics of continuing interest.

I have added a Moodle server to my website collection and I am learning its intricacies.

My first venture is:
The Basics of Biblical Greek.

Publication project

With Sam Deressa and the help of the Hoffmann Initiatives, we are starting: Global South Theological Publications.

We will publish books and articles from the Global South which are of seminal importance for the church today.

Our first project is to launch the Global South Theological Journal.

One of my great joys was to direct and teach in the University Honors Program for twelve classes. These interdisciplinary courses sought to integrate faith and learning while meeting the General Education requirements of the university.
