Hello, my name is Alex Kirk.
My PhD thesis focuses on reading Proverbs 30 as both poetry and theology within the book of Proverbs, the Hebrew Bible, and the Christian canon. I am interested in things like Biblical Hebrew philology, poetry, wisdom literature, and theological interpretation of Scripture. For a window into my academic work, complete with PDFs of publications, syllabi, and more (!), you can browse my academia.edu profile. Much of the same info is on my CV, which I keep up-to-date as a public Google doc.
From 2016–19, I spent most of my time teaching Bible and theology for national pastors in the majority world with Training Leaders International. I still teach with TLI, but I'm no longer full-time staff. If you want to follow my teaching for the global church in real time, or view a gallery of past adventures, check out my Instagram.
The best way to keep up-to-date with me and my work as well as get a glimpse into what I am studying, teaching, and thinking about is to subscribe to my monthly email newsletter. I'm calling it Splintered Light, which comes from a paradigm-shifting conversation that C.S. Lewis once had with J.R.R. Tolkien. Just in case anyone is interested, old issues of the newsletter are archived here.
Thanks for reading.
