Below are some of my recent written works. They include:
- My book about Galatians
- A newsletter about my next book on the Church Calendar
- A number of essays written for The Living Church’s Covenant blog
- A selection of some Letters from the Headmaster from my work at Coram Deo Academy.
- And a few poscasts episodes that I have joined as a guest.
This is a very short book about a very short letter that will help you become a better reader of Galatians, and other New Testament letters for that matter.
From Law to Logos: Reading St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians is a primer for reading Galatians for all it is worth. The focus of this book is preparing lay Christians to understand Galatians by reading it as a letter, in its entirety, over and over again. At the end of each chapter, the reader is better prepared to read and study Galatians in its literary, historical, and theological context.
I write a newsletter about approaching the Church Calendar as an apprenticeship in Holiness. In addition to (hopefully) being helpful and informative, this newsletter is also a means of finalizing the draft of my next book, called Rhythms of Habit: The Church Calendar as an Apprenticeship in Holiness. Join me along the way to get a first look at much of the content of that book!
