Books and Talks

I devote most of my energy to my post as Tutor in New Testament at St Stephen’s House, Oxford. I also write books and essays, give presentations at conferences and parishes, and preach — please feel free to contact me at akm dot adam at gmail dot com, if you’re interested in arranging something.
