Research Area(s):

Biblical Studies: New Testament

Research Interests:

My research focuses on the New Testament, especially the Gospels and Luke-Acts, and on second-century Christianity, including the Apostolic Fathers, Christian apocrypha, and Irenaeus.
I am also working on a guide to Choral Evensong as both an aesthetic experience and a form of Christian worship. It is provisionally entitled: Choral Evensong: for Atheists and Nones?


Series editor for the Oxford Early Christian Gospel Texts (OECGT) and for the Oxford Apostolic Fathers (OAF).
