I am a lover of words and a student of effective communication. Words are all we have in order to reliably communicate our deepest and most significant thoughts and emotions. They are the indispensable means by which we live, move, and have our being in modern society.

I would love to do that for you and your organization.

A Critical Evaluation of the Foundations of N.T. Wright's Doctrine of Justification

An academic writing sample... The “New Perspective on Paul” is a term which covers a wide array of interpretive stances towards the writings of Paul.
