President Gerald Ford, RIP : The 1st President I Ever Voted Against

As you probably know, President Ford died today (12.26.06).  Not a great President, but by all accounts a very good man.  His passing brought two thinks to mind, one personal and one theological.

President Gerald Ford, the man who helped make Chevy Chase famous and who will forever be linked to the pardon of Richard M. Nixon in 1974, died today (12.26.06).  Say a prayer of thanks for this mediocre president, but good man, today, and read on for my thoughts on the man.

Old Testament Study - The Book of Job

Since I had been out of contact with my site I have not posted any of my more recent class handouts.  This Fall I taught on Job for the first time (I generally avoid it like the plague).  It was a challenging class to teach and I hope you find this of interest.

Why Sci-Fi Can Teach Us A Lot

We live in a very complex world, one marked by war, scarcity, and the challenges that come from people with different cultural backgrounds and different values.  What can help us think about these challenges (aside from the Bible that is)?  How about Star Trek?
