Research Topic
Framing the Twelve: Intertextuality and Hermeneutics
Supervised by Dr William Tooman

Andy is investigating whether thematic and lexical parallels between Hosea and Malachi may constitute an intentional framing device around the Twelve Prophets. He hopes to discover whether this frame may act as a heuristic guide for the interpretation of the Twelve.

Other Information
Andy lives in Lancashire with his wife and five children where he is the Vicar of a Church of England parish in Blackburn diocese. He is passionate about helping people to know, love and follow Jesus Christ in the whole of their lives. Andy’s academic interests focus mainly on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible – particularly investigating how certain texts interact with one another, or are re-used, within the canon. In his spare time Andy likes watching and playing sport, cooking (mainly meat!), listening to music (especially Jazz) and playing ‘pile on’ with his children.
