I am the Pastor of Comal Country Church, Canyon Lake, TX and Adjunct Online Professor of New Testament for Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, Lynchburg, VA.  My wife, Cindy, is a physician’s assistant at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Dallas.  Our children are grown.

I am a graduate of Mississippi State University (B.S.) and Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M., Ph.D.) and have done additional graduate study at Mississippi State University, Harding Graduate School of Religion and Jerusalem University College.  I have taught biblical studies and theology full-time for 15 years at Crichton College, LeTourneau University, Talbot School of Theology, Cedarville University and Criswell College (where he was also Dean of Faculty), plus part-time or in adjunct roles at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, Ashland Theological Seminary and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as overseas at Bible training institutes in Ukraine and the Philippines.  I’ve also pastored three churches in Texas for almost 13 years, as well as interim pastorates in Texas, California and Ohio.

My doctoral dissertation was “A New Testament Theology of Discipling” (Dallas Seminary, 1985).  My books include Looking Back, Moving On (NavPress, 1993), Truthful Living: What Christianity Teaches about Recovery (with Kathy McReynolds; Baker Books, 1994), God behind the Seen: Expositions of the Books of Ruth and Esther (with Barry Davis; Baker Books, 1995/Second Edition, Christian Focus Publications, 2003), Disciplined Living: What the New Testament Teaches about Recovery and Discipleship (with Kathy McReynolds; Baker Books, 1996), Women as Christ’s Disciples (with Kathy McReynolds; Baker Books, 1997/Second Edition, Christian Focus Publications, 2003 [Crossings Book Club Edition, 2004]) and Inspired Preaching: A Survey of Preaching in the New Testament (with Richard Wells; Broadman & Holman, 2002).

I have published articles and book reviews in Bibliotheca Sacra, Journal of Pastoral Practice, Christian Education Today, Criswell Theological Review, Sundoulos, Journal of Psychology and Theology, Decision, Bulletin for Biblical Research, Trinity Journal, New Testament Studies, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society and Faith and Mission.  I’ve contributed segments, entries or chapters to the Evangelical Commentary on the Bible, Anchor Bible Dictionary, Holman Bible Handbook, Dictionary of Paul and His Letters, The Complete Who’s Who of the Bible, Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments, Israel: the Land and the People, The Wisdom of Jesus, Holman Concise Bible Commentary, Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions, Interpreting the New Testament, Baker Commentary on the Bible, Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch and Popular Encyclopedia of Apologetics. I also paraphrased Revelation for the forthcoming Holman Christian Standard Bible Children’s Bible.

The Holman Christian Standard Bible Study Bible, for which I wrote the notes on “Luke,” “Galatians” and “Revelation,” is the sixth study Bible project in which I’ve participated.  I was an Associate Editor and the Lead Writer for the Life Recovery Bible (Tyndale, 1992), the notes of which were also utilized for the more recent New Living Translation edition of the LRB (Tyndale, 1996) and somewhat rewritten for the Spiritual Renewal Bible (Zondervan, 1998). I also contributed to the Nelson Study Bible (Thomas Nelson, 1997) and the Apologetics Study Bible (Broadman & Holman, 2007).
