I am a historian of religion (primarily Hebrew Bible and Achaemenid Persian Religion) and a filmmaker of an Anglican persuasion. An American by birth, I have been an expatriate for a decade and counting. I have professional interests in Achaemenid Period Judaism, Iranian Influence, and prophetic and apocalyptic literatures. I am also interested in biblical hermeneutics, particularly in the Anglican context, as well as the intersections of Bible and Film. I also wish to continue writing-directing independent films, as money allows.
This blog is where I work out ideas on things extra-academic outside my expertise, usually with a theological, philosophical, or political leaning. On occasion, my thinking on various things related to biblical hermeneutics will also be included. I hope to be able to get thoughtful feedback from friends and colleagues here. I especially value (constructive) criticism.
The title is a reference to my favorite theologian-philosopher, who continues to influence my thinking in many different ways.
