I have been a Fellow of Regent’s Park since 1986 and I hold a Research Lectureship within the Faculty of Theology and Religion.  I am also a member of the Society of New Testament Studies and have served on the Editorial Board for several academic journals.  I am married to Dr Deborah W. Rooke, a Tutor of Old Testament who is an Associate Member of the Theology Faculty.  My research interests include Pauline studies, particularly the relationship between Christology and eschatology, Jewish apocalyptic literature, the apocalypse of John, numismatics as applied to New Testament studies, the New Testament & modern literature and film, the Corinthian Correspondence, the Epistle to the Ephesians, and 17th-century Baptists.

I hold a BSc in Liberal Arts (History Major) from the University of the State of New York (1978), MDiv from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, KY (1980), and degrees in Theology from Kings College, London (MTh, 1982 and PhD, 1985).

My role in College

Alongside my role as Tutor for Graduate Admissions, I teach a range of papers in Theology and Religion, including ‘Introduction to the Study of the Bible’, ‘The Gospels’, ‘Pauline Epistles’, ‘Matthew and 1 Corinthians’, ‘Romans and John’, ‘Biblical Interpretation’, ‘New Testament Greek’ and ‘Issues in Church History’.
