ACADEMIC INTERESTS
I am particularly interested in how religious texts are perceived, interpreted, and taught in various contexts. As a biblical scholar, I have examined how religious texts have been read, heard, and interpreted in different historical contexts. As a religious education scholar, I have focused on how religious texts are taught by religious education teachers and religious education textbooks. My research is interdisciplinary with emphasis on different theoretical perspectives from literary theory, linguistics, and various cognitive approaches to literature. Recently, I have both employed these theoretical perspectives to shed light on the historical reception of religious texts and to elucidate the results of current empirical research.
