Thank you for visiting the blog—I hope that you have found the posts you have read helpful, encouraging and a useful resource.

If you would like to support this ministry, there are four main things you could do.


The development and popularity of this blog was not something I had fully anticipated, but I continue to feel that this is an important ministry God has called me to which resources his church. I very much value people praying for me and this ministry, especially around God’s guidance as to what to write about, maintaining this as a space for discussion and engagement, and ensuring that it is a resource which will bless and strengthen others, especially through enabling them to (re-)engage reflectively with Scripture.

If you would like to receive occasional reflections and updates from me, please sign up with your email address here:



People only find the blog useful if they read it, and they only read it if they find it! If you have found an article here stimulating (even if you haven’t agreed with everything I have said!) and think others would do so to, then do please pass it on. You could do this by emailing the link to friends and colleagues, posting on Facebook, or tweeting a link. If you follow me on Twitter, then you can just retweet my tweets.

Tell me

Quite a few of my readers don’t have any hesitation in telling me when I am wrong—which I appreciate, since that creates space for honest discussion. But if you find a post helpful and want to say something positive, feel free to do that too! If you want to do that in private rather than in a public comment, then you can use the Contact page or send me a Facebook or Twitter message. It is always encouraging to receive these!


In order to be free to write and research, I am not currently in a stipendiary (paid) full-time post, and I therefore rely on donations for this part of my ministry. If you feel able to make a one-off or regular donation, that is greatly appreciated. Up until now I have mostly done this through Patreon, but there are some disadvantages to this, as they take a cut, work in dollars, and levy VAT (for a bizarre reason based in their reading of EU VAT regulations!).

Alternatively, you can donate as a one-off or on a regular basis through PayPal here:

There is no charge for PayPal transactions, but a small standard charge for payment by card.

Whatever you are able to offer in the way of support—thank you very much!
