We are well into the long summer school holidays here at the moment, and Cara is looking forward to going back to school in early September. Things at uni have been very quiet at this time, and besides working on the PhD, Matt has been preparing to teach two modules in Biblical Greek.
Another side project that has come up is a new book: Together with the scholar Stanley E. Porter, Matt will be editing a book on "Hermeneutics, Paul, and Theology" in honour of Professor Thiselton. It is hoped that the book will be published in 2012, the year of Thiselton's 75th birthday.

I am pleased to confirm that the University of Nottingham would like to offer you a casual appointment as Lecturer in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies in the Autumn/Spring semester of the 2009-10 academic year."
In other words, I'll be teaching Greek. Look out Nottingham!... or should I say, "Blepete!!"

A painting of Luther by Cranach, who played a very influential role as the propaganda illustrator for the Protestant Reformation:
Tetzel's Coffer: A moneybox which was used for the payment of indulgences (i.e. reduced time in purgatory). This practice was abominable in Luther's eyes...
The "cloaca"/latrine at Luther's residence, where he claimed to defeat the devil!
The (rebuilt) door of the 95 theses:
Ein Feste Burg: A strong fortress is our God...
Tabletalk: Luther's living room...
The study of Philipp Melanchthon:
