About Mr. Kim
As a scholar of biblical literature, Daewoong loves to help others find that the study of the Bible is fascinating. He is a doctoral student at the Department of Religious Studies at Rice University. He is currently at work on his dissertation titled The Use of the Hebrew Bible in the Book of Daniel. His main research area spans early Judaism, with a focus on wisdom and apocalypticism. He has presented national and international academic papers and published some of them.
Daewoong is also an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church of America. He proclaims God as speaking directly to men and women. As a preacher of the gospel, Daewoong likes to lead the audience to explore the textual world of the Bible—the deliberately terse composition with radical implications, the skilful manipulation of our ordinary expectations, the unrelenting honesty in revealing the divine, and the power in the shaping of Christian morale.
