Followers of Jesus who are training to provide leadership for God's people must be life-long learners for whom Scripture is an inexhaustible source of challenge and inspiration. That happens best as we learn methods of biblical interpretation (and the original language of Scripture if possible). It also requires a sense of adventure, openness to new insights, and an eagerness to test ideas within the community of faith. It is my special privilege and calling to help students acquire these abilities and attitudes.
