I have always liked teaching and writing. These are a selection of things I and others have written. They are arranged chronologically rather than thematically, not least because not everything below represents my current thinking on a subject. From 1983 to 2007 I was very involved with the International Churches of Christ. From wholeheartedly espousing their thinking, with time I have acquired more objectivity and I hope, am more centred on what Jesus has done and less on advocating a system and what we must do. Rather than editing out all my views which have changed, I have let them stand as a historic record. "By the grace of God I am what I am" 1 Cor 15:10
