This book presents his theological interest in Shakespeare, gathered from the many classes, conferences, and papers where he has presented this work.
The research for _Shakespeare, Theology, and the Unstaged God_ included a theater component as well, as he not only traveled to see various productions of Shakespeare on stage, but also played small roles in a local production of Macbeth in Austin, Texas, with a group of young and very talented actors and director. In addition, he hosted an annual 12th Night party, with costumes, performances, and a tree burning, during the years when he was writing this book.
