I came to ALC as Lecturer in New Testament in July, 2012. Previously I taught New Testament at Duke University and Fordham University in the United States. I was born in 1971 and ordained to the ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in 2004. From 2004 to 2007 I served St. Thomas Lutheran Church in Nyack, New York, as pastor. I have served on the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Dialogue in the United States. I have twice held Alexander von Humboldt Fellowships for advanced research at the universities of Tübingen (2008) and Berlin (2012).
I am married to Heidi, and we have three children, Matthias, Hans, and Anna.
