I started this blog in 2003 on my first sabbatical from my teaching post at Luther Seminary. I'm Lutheran, with a Ph. D. from Duke University. I have taught at Luther Seminary since 1997.
You can find postings listed by text in the Scripture Index or by the Sunday of the church year a text is assigned in the Lectionary Index. The search box at the left is also a good way to see if I've written on a particular text or theme.
