Articles I've written both published and unpublished on a range of topics. Some of these are PDF downloads; others are links to copyrighted material.
Links to books I've written in the fields of biblical studies, hermeneutics, New Testament, Gospels, and Bible Translation.

My passion is to serve others in such a way that they can be all that God is has called them to be. This site is set up to provide biblical studies resources for a better understanding of interpreting and applying God's word.
