After an extremely long lay off, I have begun to post again on Withering Fig. This was my first blog endeavor. In some ways it still captures my attention.
Because Scripture study is a part of my daily life, I’m hoping to use this as the jumping point for the “new” Fig. Previously, I had used other bloggers to kickstart my ideas. However, I quickly became disenchanted with that as there was way too much to read.
For those who are curious, but don’t want to click through, here is the text from the About page:
The purpose of Withering Fig is to invite conversation on all kinds of topics pertaining to Christianity — both academic and faith-based. Bridging the gap between critical studies of the Bible and acting out a faith on a day-to-day basis is the heartbeat of Withering Fig. It’s what we do!
Withering Fig was founded in 2007 by Stephen Hebert. Stephen is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and holds the degree of Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School. His specialties are early Christian history, biblical texts, and noncanonical literature.
Currently, Stephen lives in Friendswood, Texas with his wife. He works in the tech field and volunteers with local ministries.
