Ever since my doctoral work I have had an interest in Luke-Acts studies; however, of late I have also become interested in the Johannine literature. Teaching Galatians and Romans has afforded me the opportunity to dig deeper into Paul's writings. I am also really entranced by the Letter to the Hebrews. In terms of methodology, I gravitate toward narrative, reader-response, and certain aspects of social-scientific criticism.
