About Me: 

I'm the CRC campus minister at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. I mentor students as they become Christian scholars who are able to engage in missional life within the Academy and in service to the world. I earned my PhD on the power of the institutional church within the theology of Abraham Kuyper at the University of Bristol (UK). I'm the author of "Acts: An Introduction" (2016), "Engaging the World with Abraham Kuyper" (2019), and "The Power of the Church" (2020). I'm currently writing on evangelism within a Kuyperian framework, interpreting the New Testament Gospels as they bear witness to Jesus, and the 1960s counterculture as a missed opportunity for Christian mission.

    Thank you for your thoughts on Acts! These are some of the very questions I wanted to address in my book, "Together for the World: The Book of Acts." Thanks for keeping the conversation...
