It's a Boy! or Changes and a New Addition at Christians in Context

Christians in Context as an entity is not legally allowed to adopt and is unable to have children. In lieu of those joys we have done the next best thing: added another blogger.

Jeffrey K. Bruce (called "Jeff" for short...) is not only one of my best friends in the world (I have brothers, but if I didn't, he would be the brother I never had), but he is a real live genius. As I have said before, I try not to use words that I don't mean, but if you knew him as well as I do you would know that if that isn't true, then it's dang close to it.

Jeff has amassed just about every academic credential possible to the level that he has studied at (which currently is his just finished M. A. in the New Testament from Talbot School of Theology). If you ever want to know anything about the New Perspective or Pauline Theology more generally, Jeff would tell you to talk to Stephen Westerholm. But supposing you can't get in touch with Dr. Westerholm, he is a great source on these and many other issues related especially to New Testament studies and theology.

But beyond that, Jeff is a devoted man of God and a great friend and brother in Christ. He will tell you more about his interests, theological and otherwise, but I for one am utterly thrilled to have Jeff joining the CiC team and greatly look forward to his contributions.

It is, after all, always nice to add a genius to your consistent reading!
