Hanging with Big Kev
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of joining Kevin Vanhoozer for lunch. I watched him do a video with Zondervan which included him playing the piano; a truly remarkable man. Back in my Ph.D studies Vanhoozer's Is There a Meaning in This Text? was my sword and shield when I was getting grilled like a cheese burger about methodology in my doctoral presentations. We share a friendship with Bob Gundry who is Vanhoozer's mentor (I got to have coffee with Gundry last year at SBL in Boston). Vanhoozer is also writing a paper on "Wrighting the Wrongs of the Reformation" for a conference in Wheaton next April.
