There is a difference between defaulting to a historic confession (Westminster, 2LCF, etc.) and actually submitting oneself to the confession as a faithful summary of Biblical Doctrine. There are some who feign adherence to a confession by proclaiming in their bio that they are WCF or 1689 and then in the next breath declaring a […]
A New Book
I am happy to announce that I am under contract with B&H Publishing Group to write a book about the hope of glorification. Lord willing it will be coming out in the Fall of 2024. I will seek to post regular updates here on how my progress is going. As of today, I have written […]

Most of my theological research fits nicely within the general category of Glorification. In recent days I am researching what has been written on the topic, specifically in monograph form. My searches have turned up very few results and certainly nothing written that is easily accessible as in nothing that can easily be grabbed off […]
Happy (post-COVID) Pastor Hunting
