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.

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?
General Augusto Pinochet – Neither Hero nor Villain
General Augusto Pinochet died on Sunday. He was a dictator and responsible for the death of 3197 people during his 17 years at the helm of Chile. So how cannot he not be a moster?
