I have written a number of books, booklets and papers over the years ranging from biblical commentary and theology to handbooks for Christian teaching. Some have been available for on-line reading (although those who hosted those resources may no longer be doing so), many are still available in print format (as indicated), and those that are of current interest are being prepared for publication on Kindle. Here I list the main titles (newest first). There have also been numerous papers published on-line on various websites; I don't have a list, but a number relating to Christian education can be found on this Internet Archive.
