I am a PhD candidate in New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology, with an M.T.S. from the Boston University School of Theology in New Testament. My areas of interest range from Hermeneutics to the Gospels to the Ancient Economy and Economic Anthropology. My dissertation will be an Anthropological analysis of Luke 19.11-28. I hope to post portions of it on this blog as I write it.
I am a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Although, I am not a creedal or doctrinal Christian, I still consider myself a follower of Christ and a biblical Christian.
My goal for this blog is to start discussions, particularly on the relationship between the Christian canon and economics. Blog posts will be either exegetical or will interact with other posts on the web. While I am well versed in biblical exegesis, I am still a novice at economics. So please comment and critique freely with a good spirit. Happy reading and commenting. Cheers!
