I'm a happily married father of two and a professor of Old Testament at Briercrest Seminary in Saskatchewan, Canada.
I am a Christian - with regard to grace, Augustinian; with regard to faith and the manner of one's union with Christ, Kierkegaardian; with regard to ecclesiology, very interested in Anglicanism; with regard to biblical interpretation, typological; "postmodern" in philosophical accent.
Augustine; Calvin; John Owen; Jonathan Edwards; Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Heiddegger; surrealism; myth theory; and of course the Bible, especially the Psalms, Isaiah, and Hebrews
Interests . . .
Hiking in the mountains, martial arts, creative writing (slipstream/contemporary fantasy), video games, all things Semitic, tickling my kids, watching the Saskatchewan sky, and anything that sparks that heightened sense of heavenly reality (think how you felt the first time you read your first Narnia book) - anything that produces that
