Educated in Oslo and Oxford, I held the chair of Old Testament Studies in the University of Oslo from 1986-2005.
Since my move to Edinburgh (2006-), I have authored 1 book (History and the Hebrew Bible, Mohr Siebeck 2008), and around 20 contributions in peer reviewed publications.
I have also co-edited 3 volumes: The Past in the Past, with P. Briant (The Institute for Comparative Research 2009); Prophecy in the Book of Jeremiah, with R.G. Kratz (de Gruyter 2009), and Thus Speaks Ishtar of Arbela, with R. Gordon (Eisenbrauns, forthcoming summer 2013).
I was chief editor for Supplements to Vetus Testamentum 2007-2010 (Brill). Around 30 volumes appeared during my editorship.
Among popularizing work, I can mention one book, A Brief Guide to the Hebrew Bible, Westminster John Knox, 2010 and 2 contributions to lexicons: “Biblical Theology,” in The Cambridge Dictionary of Christian Theology, Cambridge University Press (2011), pp. 62-64 and “Bible, Hebrew,” in The Encyclopedia of Ancient History, Wiley-Blackwell (2013), pp. 1107-1109.
After 2006, 8 students finished their doctoral theses under my supervision (6 in Edinburgh and 2 in Oslo). A large majority of them have been accepted for publication. 6 also finished their master dissertations. At present, I have 3 doctoral students and 1 master student. I accept new students in all areas of the Hebrew Bible.
