About Me Print E-mail
I was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 1961. After graduating from the University of Utrecht with an MS in biology, I joined an evangelical missionary organization in 1988. After earning an MA in biblical studies through the University of the Nations in 1991, I taught biblical studies for a little over ten years, mostly in Germany. During these years I met Franziska, and we have been happily married since 1997.

In 2002 I enrolled at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies as a PhD candidate and began to do research on Christian Zionism in Germany. In March 2007, my dissertation was accepted by the University of Wales, and I received the Doctor of Philosophy degree.

I am still an evangelical, active in full-time ministry, and as convinced as ever of the essential truth of evangelical faith – but not of every aspect of evangelical practice and thought, and I don’t like everything I see in our movement. To get the rest of that story, however, you will have to read the thesis.
