Interesting trivia: Kevin J. Vanhoozer (a.k.a. KJV) plays the piano beautifully!
Dr. Vanhoozer’s DST 980 class (Advanced Theological Prolegomena, a Ph.D. seminar required for all Ph.D. students in theological studies at TEDS) spent this evening at his home for dessert and our final theological discussion of the semester. Jenni and I really enjoyed it (Jenni audited the course). I had heard that Dr. Vanhoozer was a “concert pianist,” but he clarified that he’s an “amateur pianist”—but a good one, nevertheless. I asked him to play for us, and he was kind enough to play two nocturnes, one by Chopin and the other by Beethoven. And true to form, he bookended his playing with theological discussions about the hermeneutics of music!
