I have taught, and continue to teach, Hebrew and Old Testament on both the undergraduate and graduate level for more than thirty years at a number of institutions. I consider myself an Old Testament generalist, though I have a special interest in biblical law which was the focus of my dissertation and three of my four books. My books include 'THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT': A LITERARY APPROACH (1994), BIBLICAL LAW AND ITS RELEVANCE (2006), LEVITICUS, NUMBERS (2015), and DANIEL (2021). I was a translator for the Holman Christian Standard Bible (since revised into the Christian Standard Bible). I am married and have two adult children. I serve as an elder of my local church, where I often fill in as preacher for our pastor. I live in Monroe, Wisconsin, but I have taught courses in Brazil (via interpreters), and Austria to students speaking Russian (also through interpreter), and in online courses, I have had students who were living in South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
