His publications include articles in Journal of Biblical Literature, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Catholic Biblical Quarterly, and Zeitschrift für Neues Testament. He is the author of Unlocking Romans: Resurrection and the Justification of God andJesus Have I Loved, But Paul? A Narrative Approach to the Problem of Pauline Christianity.
