My research to date has been related to my efforts as a preacher and missionary. Because of needs that have arisen in my ministry I have done some in-depth research into the book of Revelation, the nature and work of the Holy Spirit, the Book of Proverbs, a history of hymns, and our worship in songs. My doctoral dissertation will surround Campbell and Stone’s restoration hermeneutic and the way the Bible itself wishes to be interpreted. My doctoral work is taking place in a school from a very different heritage from ours in churches of Christ, and I hope that this will be an opportunity to influence some of my colleagues there.
