Adoration of the Magi from a 17th century Gondarine sensul (Walters Art Museum MS 36.10.2R)

I am presently at work on three book projects.

The first, under contract with Fortress Press and forthcoming in fall 2022, 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. You can preorder it here!

The ┬ásecond, under contract with Lexington Books and also forthcoming in fall 2022, 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.

The third, under contract with Eerdmans Publishing and forthcoming in 2023, is an edited volume on the topic of “Judeophobia and the New Testament: Texts, Contexts, and Pedagogy. I am co-editing this project with two colleagues: Dr. Sarah Rollens of Rhodes College, and Dr. Meredith JC Warren of the University of Sheffield.
