Welcome continued

I wonder sometimes if the teacher is not the real student and beneficiary.

These words by George Steiner have been a cherished motto of mine for years, except that I would be more definite and say that, as a teacher, I have without question found myself to have been a life-long student and learner, which continues to be immensely inspirational, life-giving, and at times even healing.

I would love nothing more than to share all this with you, so, if you are interested, do please follow the link below to find out about the kinds of talks, workshops, and study days I can offer.

My publications include two short and very readable books on Amos and the Song of Songs as well as a number of (mostly scholarly) articles, some of which can be read online.

Please see the following pages, if you wish to find out more about myself or would like to get in touch.
