I view myself as a “Biblical engineer.” My interest is in helping students see how the Bible works. This is where teaching Biblical interpretation, research and writing, Biblical Hebrew, and Old Testament come into the picture. As such, I am particularly interested in helping students who wish to attend graduate school.
I grew up in Boulder, Colorado. My wife (Terry) and I have been married since 1978, and we have three sons. My wife and I are avid bicyclists, riding thousands of miles every year. We also both into photography (nature, EU Sports, countryside).
I also enjoy writing humorous and satirical songs about many subjects. Many of these are available on my website: http://www.drbill.net/music/index.htm
