Please support this website
by buying items through our
Threshold Bible Study
(more coming soon)
This website contains a variety of materials, mostly related to biblical and liturgical studies, intended for scholars, teachers, students, pastors, believers, seekers, and others. Many pages contain my own writings and photographs, some were created by my students, and some are collections of links to other websites.
Although I am a Roman Catholic priest and have taught mostly in Catholic institutions, I hope that these materials are academically reliable and pastorally adaptable enough to be useful for many other Christians and non-Christians as well.
Please feel free to use any of my own materials for your own study or teaching purposes, subject to the conditions listed on my copyright page. I hope you enjoy and benefit from these pages!
