Research

At present, I am at work on two book projects.

The first, under contract with Fortress Press, is a reception history of the Magi. In this book, I trace the development of the Magi from their first appearance in Matthew’s Gospel, through Christian Apocryphal Literature, Patristic theology, iconography, and up until the present day.

The ┬ásecond, under contract with Lexington Books, is an edited volume on the topic of “Sex, Violence, and Early Christian Texts.” I am co-editing this project with my colleague Dr. Christy Cobb, who teaches at Wingate University.
