Dr. Larry D. George, Ph.D.

To obtain a tenure-track position in the field of New Testament Studies, Biblical Studies, and Early Christian History and Theology (400 B.C.E. to 400 C.E.) with a concentration on teaching Greek (Koine), Cultural Studies, and other methodological approaches to reading the biblical text from one’s own social location. My experience involves a teaching career spanning seventeen years (22) at five educational institutions (undergraduate, graduate, MA, D.Min., Ph.D., with distant, online, and brick-and-mortar formats). My engagement with students seeks to facilitate the development of critical thinking, reading, writing, and communication skills, while taking seriously the inclusion of people regardless of religion, race, gender, or cultural differences.
