Further education Masters in Theology (focus in Old Testament)

Favorite courses at Berkeley Philosophy of the Mind, Ethics, and Philosophy of Language.

How has your philosophical training influenced your life and career? Careful attention to how we use words. Thorough analysis of arguments both ones I pose and those offered by others. Better at reading and comprehending difficult texts.

Any current engagement with philosophy? My Masters in Theology is traditionally a branch of Philosophy. But also informally engaging in everyday conversations about God and the state of the world, in the Socratic tradition.
