J. Peter Bercovitz, Ph.D. (New College, University of Edinburgh), was Professor of Religion at West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon, WV. With sadness, the administrators of this Web site report his death, on November 21, 2005.

The material on this site was developed and tried out over the years with college students, with learned societies (the Society of Biblical Literature and its regional unit, the Eastern Great Lakes Biblical Society), and with study groups for the non-specialist. 

While the author based his work on sound scholarship, he also believed that the results of his research could be made accessible to the general reader, especially to those who are open to a fresh perspective on the apostle Paul, and one which is free from stereotyping.
