The Gospel of John heralds a unique call to discipleship. Unlike any other Gospel, the Fourth Gospel offers a multitude of benefits for following Jesus. John promises that discipleship is rewarded with adoption by the Father, royal friendship with the Son, and abiding with the Father and the Son through the Spirit. Nearly two dozen additional benefits fall under these three main categories as John persuades his readers to continuous belief in Jesus. Follow Me: The Benefits of Discipleship in the Gospel of John traces these rewards as incentives for disciples to remain loyal to Jesus in the context of hostility and opposition, in all times and all places, no matter the cost.
This book examines Paul's anti-imperialisn, self-understanding as a Hellenistic Jew, and indebtedness to Roman civic life.

The Apostle employs the Scriptures more in Romans than in any of his other letters. Scripture, Texts, and Tracings in Romans advances the interpretation of Romans by exploring how the Apostle Paul quoted, alluded to, or echoed the Jewish Scriptures. Identification of allusions is at the forefront, as are questions of methodology, the texture of Paul's theology, his understanding of Scripture, and implications for other areas of Pauline studies, such as empire-criticism.
