What’s your favorite book of the Bible and why?

My favorite book in the Old Testament is Ecclesiastes because it is so realistic.  I do not find it pessimistic as some do because life, in reality, does take some of the twists and turns that Qoheleth addresses.  My favorite book in the New Testament is a tossup between the Gospel of Matthew and the Book of Revelation, both of which are so “Old Testament.”

 

When I’m not in the Flores Bible Building, I love to . . .

When I am not at work in the Flores Bible Building, I enjoy being at home.  I enjoy quilting and scrapbooking as hobbies.  I also enjoy doing research on various biblical books and theologies.

 

What person in history do you wish you could sit down with for a conversation?

If I had to choose just one historical person with whom I would like to sit down and have a conversation, I would choose Queen Elizabeth I.  I am fascinated by English history and that time period.

 

What animal best describes you?

I have been described on occasion as a little Chihuahua

 

Why are you glad to be part of the Wayland family?

I am glad to be a part of the Wayland family because I am fulfilling the call of God on my life to be a professor teaching the Bible in a university setting.
