I am Canadian born but raised in India (where my parents were stationed as missionaries). I completed my secondary education in Calgary, Alberta where I then attended the University of Calgary for two years. I completed my BA degree (with a major in Biblical Studies) at Point Loma College in San Diego, California. After a short time as an Instructor and Dean of Men at a college in Winnipeg, Manitoba I proceeded to the University of Toronto where I earned my M.A. degree in Ancient Near Eastern History and Languages. Finally, I attended the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, for Professional Teaching Certification.
Since graduating from UBC my partner and I have lived in Victoria on Vancouver Island where I have been an Intermediate/Middle School Teacher for the past thirty-one years. I am now happily semi-retired doing what I like best: lecturing, teaching, writing...and travelling.

Necessary Corrections: To Straighten an Increasingly Misnamed 'Orthodoxy'
by Dean Helm
After years of studying the Hebrew and Christian scriptures I have always been puzzled by the "connect" between the two, and, the "disconnect" between them and the Christianity we know today. When did the message stop being the message of Jesus and become Jesus the messenger? I wish to weave traditions hoary with age into fabric for today to answer: Where do we need to go and how can we get there?
