The following are books or articles I have written in the area of theology.

Essays in Biblical Interpretation

During the course of my graduate work in Biblical studies I had the opportunity to write many lengthy essays on topics surrounding Biblical interpretation, particularly focusing on modern Pentecostal perspectives. This body of work was compiled and edited, and has been made freely available via a free online book.

Many of the essays were written with scholarly audiences in mind, particularly those familiar with modern evangelical Christian theological discourse. The entire work was composed by myself. The selected chapter below focuses on American pluralism and contemporary theological responses to pluralism.

The annual meetings are mainly attended by pentecostal lecturers, Bible professors, and theologians from Bible colleges and seminaries around the United States. This presentation thus spoke to a scholarly pentecostal audience, and synthesized and evaluated modern pentecostals’ experiential Biblical interpretation and application. The presentation was later published in the annual proceedings of the SPS.

Society for Pentecostal Studies Presentation:
Free and open: Web 2.0 and the extension of Pentecostal education

This presentation dealt with the use of Web 2.0 tools by Pentecostals in discipleship and education environments. These new tools allow for social interaction and collaboration, and for the creation of constructivist learning environments. The intended audience is Bible scholars, teachers, pastors, and missionaries. The main thrust of the argument is that we ought to use the free and open tools at our disposal to make our theological education and discipleship resources free and open to the world.
