I have lived in Europe, Asia and North America. I have been a tree-planter, a grain bin builder, a children's camp director, a pastor, a tour guide, an archaeologist and more; but what motivates me most is understanding the Bible better, especially when read in the original languages and in the light of other contemporaneous literature.

Read about Brian Schultz's Hebrew course and learn about the Israel study tour he is leading this summer.
