My research interests lie in the interpretation of the New Testament, including in art, music and literature. I have been Departmental Lecturer in New Testament Studies at the Faculty of Theology and Religion at Oxford, as well as Director of the Centre for the Reception History of the Bible.
My role in College
I am the Director of Studies for undergraduates in Theology and Religion, and Director of the College’s new Centre for Baptist Studies.
The purpose of the CBS is to build upon the College’s tradition of scholarship in the fields of Baptist History and Heritage, and to encourage engagement with our world-leading Angus Library and Archive.
