What I Want to Instill in My Students
“I want to connect my students with their past and let the past influence them, teach them, and guide them inasmuch as it can and should, and help them to think well biblically and Christianly about the faith, about the Scriptures, about themselves, about this world, and about their place in it.”

Areas of Interest and Research
Church history, Reformation and post-Reformation studies.
