Year elected: 2006

His principal research field is New Testament Studies, where he is internationally known for large-scale scholarly inquiries which sum up work in a broad area, but also develop it creatively. His work is important beyond the New Testament field in church history and Christian doctrine, and often relates to contemporary religious movements such as Pentecostalism, ecumenism, and Jewish-Christian dialogue.
