Joined E2 about 4 years ago and posted a lot of stuff on religion. Went away for a long time. In the meantime, I got am MA (in Catholic theology), moved to Michigan, got married, got into a Ph.D. program in Christian history at the University of Chicago, moved back to Chicago, got interested in the end times, joined the Disciples of Christ, and began studying for the ministry. That's a reasonably short summary!

The list below is intended for my purposes; if it's useful, great.

Dispensationalism & Fundamentalism

Biblical criticism & reading

The nature of belief

Theology that's useful
