Academic Work

This page is some of the work I completed at the seminary. I suspect no one will ever find it interesting, but I’m putting it here for all to see, anyway. Why? Because I can – And you can’t stop me.

Please don’t steal this material. If you use a piece of my research or material, feel free to use it and cite it appropriately. If you need to know where I got something, feel free to drop me a line.
