Sam Tsang (PhD, University of Sheffield, Biblical Studies), also known affectionately by his peers and students as “Dr. Sam,” is a part-time associate prof at Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary, and full-time truth-seeker, speaker, author and family man. After two decades of full-time church ministry and academic teaching, Sam has decided to pursue his passion full-time. After settling in the Seattle area, he devotes his time now writing and speaking about topics he feels passionate about: biblical literacy, biblical interpretation, and preaching. His latest English books, Right Texts, Wrong Meanings and Right Kingdom, Wrong Stories (Wipf and Stock), have come out in the spring and summer of 2013. Besides his writing and teaching, Sam also does consultation and coaching with preachers who wish to improve on their interpretive and preaching skills. The reason why this blog is called “engage the pews” is because the “pews” are where people sit every week. The speaker needs to engage them. In order to engage them, the speaker needs to understand all the issues that will come into play. Please feel free to visit him at http://engagescriptures.org/ or contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org for consultation, speaking, preaching and coaching needs. If you wish to follow him on Facebook, please do stop by and “like” the page. You will receive all the latest publishing and public lecture news as well as his daily updates. His other blog here focuses on the Bible and/or culture. He’s also on Linkedin, if you prefer to connect that way. Be blessed.
