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.
