I grew up in Palawan (southern Philippines) where my father translated the NT into a tribal language. After college I worked as a missionary in Asia from 1977-1999, where my wife and I raised our children. Over the last twenty years, I have taught and done administrative work at Clearwater Christian College, Cedarville University, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School at Trinity International University. At TIU I served as the Director of Graduate Programs at the Florida Regional Center and as Affiliate Professor of New Testament. I continue to teach as an adjunct professor for TIU and at a number of other institutions. However, my primary work is as a missionary-educator with the Christian Training and Missionary Fellowship, where I also serve as the president. My passions include theology and the global church, along with the gospel mission to Islam. Along the way I have studied under William Dyrness at Asian Theological Seminary (now at Fuller), Bob Peterson at Biblical Theological Seminary (now at Covenant Seminary, St. Louis), and I did my dissertation on wisdom christology with the guidance of D. A. Carson at Trinity International University. My book, Wisdom Christology: How Jesus Becomes God’s Wisdom for Us, was published in May, 2011. Recently my essay “How Does God’s Love in Christ Relate to Islam?” was recently published in The Love of God (Crossway, 2016). I am currently working on a book on Islamic theology for Christians, as well as a volume on Trinitarian theology for the church’s mission.
