His dissertation was published by Scholars Press under the title, Wealth and Beneficence in the Pastoral Epistles: A Bourgeois Form of Early Christianity?

He contributed the notes on Ephesians and Colossians to The Spirit of the Reformation Study Bible and The Reformation Study Bible, and is developing a video series on Paul's teachings through Third Millennium Ministries.
