Born and raised in the northeast, Tim found in his Catholic upbringing a commitment to listen to the diverse voices of Christian history. In the classroom, he tries to explore innovative approaches to issues of economic justice, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity by tracing the diverse paths taken by early Christians living the Gospel. In studying the social context of Christian origins and the history of scriptural interpretation, Tim is continually excited to find new resources for contemporary theological insights and imagination. His research focuses on the performative aspects of itinerancy among early Christians, investigating how apostles expressed the kerygma in deed as well as word. His current work examines 2 Corinthians and Paul’s use of travel metaphors in the service of defining an emerging social movement. More broadly, he is interested in the role of travel in establishing early Christianity as a new political imagery.
