An expert in the development of Latin theology, Dr. Frisius is particularly interested in the development of Biblical exegesis in the Patristic period. He teaches courses that introduce the New Testament and that deal with the Patristic era of church history.

His book, Tertullian’s Use of the Pastoral Epistles, Hebrews, James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude, will soon be released by Peter Lang Press.

Before coming to Olivet, he was an adjunct professor at Marymount University and at The Catholic University of America.

Dr. Frisius is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature and the North American Patristic Society.

He and his wife, Ellen, have a son, Eli. They are also avid joggers and enjoy being outside, especially on nice days. A huge sports fan, he cheers for the Chicago Bears and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Romans

12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
