Now retired from University work, my interests and expertise are varied, but focus generally around the idea of motivating and empowering people. I engage with my original studies in Old Testament Studies, in world religions, multicultural issues, children's literature, Education Studies, steam railways, plants and gardens amongst others. My general blog is added to regularly, the others have an historic interest

Ancient Hebrew Marriage and Family - my PhD revised (work in progress, 2017). https://ancienthebrewmarriage.blogspot.co.uk/
My PhD started in 1970 was in Old Testament Studies (submitted in 1974 and examined in 1975). All typed on a manual typewriter of course. My own carbon copy tends towards fuzziness. It is a work of critical exegesis.
