Dr. Brown has focused much of her research and writing on the Gospels and on hermeneutics. In addition to a book on biblical hermeneutics, she has published two commentaries on Matthew's Gospel and is currently co-writing a third. Brown has also co-written on interdisciplinary topics, such as Christian formation and interdisciplinary integration.

I love to consider the intersection of a robust theology, a contextualized audience, and best practices of communication. My doctoral project involved the application of Christian education methods into standard evangelical homiletic practice. Simply put, moving the sermon beyond the lecture format. I like to experiment/take risks with the preaching process. Lately, I'm intrigued with pericopal theology and speech act theory's (Abraham Kuruvilla) relevance to preaching.

Dr. Clark's academic discipline is philosophy of religion. He has special interests in epistemology, the problem of evil, religious ethics, and the relation of theology to science. In addition to philosophy of religion, he has taught systematic theology and apologetics. His approach emphasizes dialogue: he invites students to learn how to support their faith perspectives with solid critical reasons. In this day of uncivil discourse, he also challenges them to listen to others, to serve, and to speak in the context of respectful personal relationships.

Currently, I have focused my research on three separate, but interrelated areas. First, I have focused my research on the Hebrew Bible with a special emphasis on Wisdom Literature. I am particularly interested in how Biblical Wisdom Literature borrows from other wisdom traditions within the Ancient Near East. Second, I am also interested in understanding how our own personal hermeneutics impact the reading of Scripture. I am particularly interested in Asian and Asian American hermeneutical approaches to the Bible. Finally, I continue to work on understanding the role that methodological choices and methods impact research outcomes primarily, but not exclusively, in the areas of citation analysis and information science.
