This blog series spotlights 50 NT scholars and their research. The goal of this series is to introduce readers to a wider circle of scholarship than they have encountered. The majority of people on this list are early or mid-career NT scholars who are doing great research and writing.

Since “in him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28), we are constantly swimming in the divine ocean. But we are like fish. We have no ability to get outside the all-pervasive water. We must develop skills for seeing God while immersed. I love exposing students and readers to new ways of thinking and living, drawing from the great theological-philosophical Christian tradition. The goal is to better view God, God’s handiwork, and Scripture, so that we can practice loyal obedience to the king together.
We are saved not merely by trusting in God’s promises in Jesus but by allegiance to him as the king. Oh, and prosopological exegesis. Everyone’s favorite topic–that is, it should be.
Richard Hays. I admire his astonishing creativity. Yet creativity alone is radically insufficient. It can be dangerous if not tempered. Hays’s creativity is constrained by an equally boundless respect for what the biblical text actually says. Hays also helped turn the academic tide in biblical scholarship away from acidic skepticism and toward an academic landscape where traditionally minded Christians have room at the scholarly table. I hope to be creative yet faithful in a way that opens up space for others too.

A book tentatively titled Beyond the Salvation Wars (Brazos, forthcoming). It is a standalone project but also a sequel of sorts to Gospel Allegiance, extending the model I develop there in order to apply it to disputed areas within salvation theory.
