Tim and his wife have two sons, and the entire family loves the outdoors, especially fishing. Tim is also an avid sports fan, movie viewer, and reader of novels. His teaching and research interests include the Gospels, Paul's letters, the relationship between early Christians and non-Christians - and how this might inform the Church today, the development of the New Testament canon, second-century Christianity, and the many ways in which Scripture has been interpreted throughout the history of the Church.
