Dr. Putnam teaches the honors courses in biblical studies.

He has published several reference works and textbooks on Classical (Biblical) Hebrew. He is working on a two-book set on biblical theology based on the metaphors of Scripture, with further projects of monographs on the interpretation of biblical poetry and a Christian view of education.

Dr. Putnam is an ordained minister. He and his wife, Emilie, have three daughters, all of whom live in southeast Pennsylvania. He enjoys reading and talking about what he and others are reading, and making music (singing and playing recorder, tabor, timbrel, and finger cymbals in early music ensembles).

He is a transplanted New England farmer who knows that Guernseys give the best milk and that hills are made of granite; he is also pretty sure that he has not yet seen a real winter in Pennsylvania.
