Northwestern College

I live in Orange City, Iowa, where I teach at Northwestern College. I teach twice a year in the doctoral program for the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies in Florida. I’m a theatre director, playwright and worship leader. For the past decade, I’ve been smitten with the importance and value of reclaiming the Bible in performance, especially the ancient Hebrew narratives.

I have an interest in the oral history of the New Testament.  I studied for a time with Werner Kelber and still have some connection with him.  I think the study of oral culture can have a great deal of influence on how we read, interpret, and perform the NT.  I am new to this.  

I was the lead scholar on a project with Thomas Nelson called THE VOICE Bible project.  The point was to create a Bible suitable for oral reading and performance in Christian communities.  The website  is www.hearthevoice.com.  I write a blog there weekly.
