Over the years God has given me the opportunity to write. Many of the items listed under this site’s Publications consist of journal articles published by The Master’s Seminary Journal. The following list, however, consists of books I have written or to which I have contributed. If the Lord allows me to do so, I hope to continue adding to this list.
