Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
Does that help? I think you could make the question better (and get the votes even or better) by expanding on what you mean in the body. Just putting your comment in the question could go a long way.

revised Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
The title of the question is misleading given the body and comments.

comment How is Psalm 34 linked to 1st Samuel 21?
I'd forgotten about the Abimelech vs. Achish issue. This is a good answer, but I think there is more. (I'll provide my own answer at some point to see what everyone thinks.)

comment How do Jewish scholars differ from Christian scholars in their approach to the Tanakh?
I agree with Monica. Your description of "Sod" seems to take the answer off the rails a bit. (And it's potentially offensive to boot.)

comment Did Jesus sweat blood?
@Richard: If it matters, the article cited by the NET Bible is pre-agnosticism and probably forms the basis for the section in the book. I haven't read it, however.

comment Did Jesus sweat blood?
@Richard: Even so, I agree with Ehrman's argument here. But not so much that I am willing to answer "yes" or "no" it seems. ;-)
