Raised in British Columbia, a pastor’s son, and acquired a passion for the Bible early in life. Served as a youth pastor for two years in Edmonton during my undergraduate studies. During my graduate studies, served as the pastor of an Evangelical Free church in Mississauga, Ontario and continue to be enthusiastic about the Church and its mission. Specialize in Old Testament studies and excited about the theological significance of the Old Testament and the value of its application for the Church today. My first book has been accepted for publication by E.J. Brill in the series Supplements to Vetus Testamentum and should come out sometime in 2009. I have written several articles in refereed journals and twenty articles in the forthcoming Baker Illustrated Bible Dictionary, edited by Temper Longman III, Peter Enns and Mark Strauss. My teaching interests include the books of Kings, Isaiah, Chronicles, Genesis, and Job. I have taught courses on Hebrew, Greek, Biblical History, the Pentateuch, the Prophetic Literature, and various Old Testament book studies. I also teach an introductory course on the entire Bible. I was named 2006 Regional Scholar for the Upper Midwest Region of the Society of Biblical Literature. I also won the 2006 Founder’s Prize for the Canadian Society of Biblical Literature and was awarded a Doctoral Fellowship by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and two Ontario Graduate Scholarships. I have been married for 13 years and have two children.
