Research Interests

Old Testament religion, literature, history, languages, theology, archaeology, ancient Near Eastern background, and history of interpretation. At the moment these interests are particularly focused on Genesis 1-11.

Current Research Projects

My major research project at the moment is the writing of a detailed commentary on Genesis 1-11 for the ICC Commentary series. As a spin-off from this I shall also be compiling a further volume of essays on Genesis 1-11.
