The Bible is not a North American invention. Its history extends prior to Greek philosophical influence and is rooted in Middle Eastern history. Its significance in the development of western culture and its global influence cannot be overstated. Its beauty as a work of literature rivals any. And its relevance to readers’ daily, personal lives continues to inspire billions across the world. Nearly one-third of the global population claims Christianity as its religion.

What does this influential book, the most-published in the world, actually say? What does it mean? How do we interpret it effectively? Why are there so many translations? And what do I do with it?

I draw from 30 years of study, reflection, and instruction including theology, comparative religion, and philosophy of religion to share my love of Scripture from a perspective that honors religious tradition, intellectual investigation, and emotional/spiritual development. All ages.

About Isaac W.

CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU
Learning involves playfulness, curiosity, and personal connection. I've studied how people learn and how people play, along with 25 years of professional and performance experience, and I focus it entirely on you. We start with what you love, discover what you already know, then make unexpected connections to build something together.

TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED
Over Zoom I use a three-camera system so you can see me face-to-face like an in-person lesson, with two cameras focused on my hands and whiteboard space so you're seeing things from my perspective. This helps us communicate and accelerates your learning.

PERSONAL AND FUN
Learning, to me, is a wildly creative process. It feels suspiciously like goofing off when we absorb information faster than we expected. It's my job to help you play, to get you over your hurdles, to explain and demonstrate things in a way that makes sense TO YOU (not just to me), and to help you have fun.

EXPERIENCED
I hold degrees from Cornish College of the Arts and University of Washington. I've taught at the university level, taught private lessons for individuals and classes for children and adults for twenty years, and created playfulness-based educational and skill-building programs over Zoom for individuals and households. I can’t wait to meet you.
