Old Testament Studies

Teaching Philosophy

My desire is to instill in students a passion for reading, studying, understanding and applying the Old Testament.


My interest in Old Testament was sparked when doing my undergraduate work. So I spent a year studying in Israel at Tel Aviv University. After completing my BA, I spent several years in pastoral ministry before going on to graduate school. Since completing my PhD, I have taught OT studies over the past thirty years at Canadian Theological Seminary and at Houghton College in New York. Upon returning to Regina several years ago, I have been an adjunct faculty member at Briercrest. My wife is on staff at the University of Regina in the Chemistry department.

Briercrest has been an oasis in my world. Each modular class seemed to meet me exactly where I was in my journey.
