Brian Larson, publisher of, contacted me and requested to put my FBC Jax Pastor’s Conference message “Applying the Word” on their website. One of his colleagues attended the session and thought it should be made available to a wider audience. It should be up soon. Preaching Today is part of the Christianity Today network.

New Writing Project

I just agreed to write a chapter for the "T & T Clark Handbook to Social Identity and the New Testament" edited by Brian Tucker and Coleman Baker. My topic will be the Agage Feast in 2 Peter/Jude as a means for shaping social identity. The goal is for the book is to be the "go to" guide for social identity discussions for NT scholars. It will be published in late 2013 in time for the national SBL meeting.
