About Me

I am the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, where I teach and research in a number of areas relating to Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and Hebrew language and exegesis, and a Research Associate at the University of Pretoria.

A native Californian, I did my first degree at Scripps College in Claremont, Ca., focussing mainly on twentieth century theology and ethics, then moved to Oxford to pursue ethics in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament under the supervision of John Barton. Before coming to Fuller I was Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at the University of Nottingham (UK). I have held research fellowships at Fitzwilliam College and Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge and at Keble College and at St John’s College in Oxford, as well as at the University of Göttingen.
