I was Secretary of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical and Theological Research for five years, and now serve as chairman of the Christian Doctrine study group.

I was appointed to the NTC Faculty as Academic Dean in 1976, and taught full-time from 1976 to 1996, before taking up the post of Professor of Theology at Nazarene Theological Seminary, Kansas City.   My PhD research at Edinburgh was in Patristics, with a thesis entitled ‘The Deity of the Holy Spirit in Gregory of Nazianzus.’ I now supervise post-graduate research students at NTC in the broad area of Christian Theology, and research students have recently successfully completed PhD theses on J.I. Packer, Leslie Newbigin and Wolfhart Pannenberg.

I have published in a number of journals, produced two books on aspects of twentieth-century church history, edited one on Darwin and Theology, and am presently part of the editorial team revising the New Dictionary of Theology. I was Secretary of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical and Theological Research for five years, and now serve as chairman of the Christian Doctrine study group. I am on the board of the Manchester Wesley Research Centre, and am currently President of the Wesleyan Theological Society.  My wife and I have four daughters, three sons-in-law, and five grand-children.
