I spend almost all of my time right here at my desk, studying the New Testament in its many contexts.  On this page I give a sampling of my research interests. 

I have published an article on the history of women in philosophy and a few academic book reviews.  My revised dissertation ihas worked its way through Wipf and Stock, and was released in May 2014. I am planning several additional projects on topics related to my dissertation.

My Book
My dissertation, "Reading 1 Corinthians with Philosophically Educated Women," will be published in May 2014 by Wipf and Stock Publishers. A writing sample and description of the dissertation are available.
