The overarching goal of a specifically Christian liberal arts education, in a word, is wisdom. It is Darian Lockett's desire to display Godly wisdom in teaching, writing and service, in order to serve the church of Jesus Christ by equipping individuals for life and ministry. Lockett is particularly interested in the General Letters, hermeneutics, theological interpretation and political/economic philosophies in Scripture. He is the author of Purity and Worldview in the Epistle of James and has published chapters on James and Jude in various edited volumes. Lockett has contributed articles to Tyndale Bulletin and Neotestamentica and has published several reviews in Scottish Journal of Theology, Review of Biblical Literature, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, and Midwestern Journal of Theology. He enjoys spending time with his family, playing guitar, reading great literature and watching college basketball (especially the Kansas Jayhawks!).
