Having published a lot on the nature of historical knowledge and historical understanding, I am currently researching the value of historical knowledge today. See my Publications for work in those fields, and links to some of the papers.

My second field of inquiry is more personal. I have spent many years considering standard Christian beliefs, trying to decide which are credible. I have published a few papers on this subject, but here present short reflections on particular issues. I measure Christian beliefs against common experience, and also address serious contradictions between some traditional Christian beliefs. The outcome of these reflections is a faith that I find  I can live by, and which I think is of great personal & social value.

Some of the ideas I present on Credible Christianity and Apologetics are controversial, and I welcome your considered comments. An opportunity to offer comments is provided underneath each article I have published on my website.
