This past week I had the opportunity to present my dissertation at a seminar at the Irish Bible Institute as well as to some friends a few nights earlier. Since I had spent the time putting it all together, I figured I would record it and stick it up here for anyone who might be interested.

In the next week, I will also put up a post sharing some of the questions I was asked and add my responses. If you have any questions, please drop me a note.
