This is the blog of Martin Shields: some time lecturer in Old Testament, author, IT consultant, amateur photographer, and a few other things as well.
Martin’s tertiary education began with a degree in Physics and Pure Mathematics. He narrowly escaped spending a year down a mine in Broken Hill looking for solar neutrinos by studying Theology, completing a Masters Honours degree on Genesis 1–3 and then his PhD on Qohelet (Ecclesiastes).
“Shields-up” (a reference, if you’ve missed it, to Star Trek and other Sci-Fi stories) is a blog designed so I can deposit thoughts and ideas of varying significance.

Greetings. With sharing the same last name, I was curious about whether our backgrounds cross. I was a second career seminary student at Concordia, St. Louis in early 1980’s, currently serving in a variety of roles with AALC.
