For fifteen or so years I have been teaching Religious Studies (a wide variety of courses) in Cincinnati-area universities. And from before that (since 1985) I was teaching Old Testament in schools training people for the permanent Diaconate in Kentucky and in Ohio.

 

    

Here I am making available a number of things I use in my teaching that might be useful for others too.
