Entering the PhD program in Biblical Interpretation at Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University Fall 2009

I am very happy to report that I have been offered and have accepted admission to the Doctor of Philosophy program in Biblical Interpretation at Brite Divinity School, TCU (Fort Worth, TX). I will be afforded the opportunity of working with some very cutting edge thinkers in imperial-critical thought (imagine that!) such as Warren Carter (Matthew and Empire [2001]; John and Empire [2008]), Fransisco Lozada, Jr., Leo Purdue, and a host of other excellent scholars. Needless to say, I am thrilled.

Oh yeah! Go Rob! I am taking Lozada right now, and it has been a blast translating the Gospel of John.

Rob: I'm thrilled for you, and I'm glad you'll be at Brite. Those folks have no idea how good of a decision they just made to offer you a spot.

Well done and congrats! I hope we run into one another at some upcoming regional meetings (SWCRS; btw, check my blog [click my name] for a rundown of my attendance and presentation at this year's regional meeting).

Congrats, again, Rob! Hope to continue to chat with you on our respective blogs!
