Evangelical Alliance of Israel meeting in Yad Ha Shmona, 2013

Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary (where I teach) is a member of the Evangelical Alliance of Israel, itself a member of the European Evangelical Alliance and the World Evangelical Alliance.

I have the privilege of serving on the Executive Committee of the EAI, where I represent (technically) our seminary. Most of the members of the Ex-Comm live  in or around Jerusalem, so I am also able to provide in a very limited manner some input from largely-Arab evangelical communities in Ha Zafon (the North).

Earlier this week EAI had its Annual General Meeting in Yad Ha Shmona, where we heard some very interesting lectures from a well-respected contextual theologian who spoke on the development of some aspects of Gospel-influenced Jewish theology. Under the leadership of our General Secretary we had a fine meeting. I was happy to catch up with a number of friends and colleagues there, like Roger Elbel and David Pileggi. And lunch was delicious too.

Afterwards, the Ex-Comm along with the Control Committee gathered for a brief meeting.

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. Presently, I live in San Antonio where I am lecturer and researcher in Muslim-Christian relations at The Christian Institute of Islamic Studies (ticks.org), and sometime adjunct professor of theology at St Mary's University.
