Welcome to TelfordWork.net! Here is a guide to my site.
Please read this open letter to my students and their parents, pastors, and friends.
I invite you to respond to me by e-mail, with two caveats: First, my response times can be less than polite, for which I apologize in advance. Feel free to nag me with more messages.
Above you will find links to my mothballed web journal Clutter, a curriculum vitae, a theological FAQ with commonly asked questions and answers about my discipline and me, and a page of my favorite Internet links.
There is much more below:

Would you like to audit a course introducing Christian doctrine, or use it for homeschooling? Be my guest. All those class lectures are online at YouTube. My general education course in Christian Doctrine operates on a 'flipped classroom' model. Students watch lectures outside class. This frees classroom time for us to take an anonymous quiz, discuss, problem-solve, interpret scripture or course readings, and take on other tasks that are best done face-to-face.
I also have an online course surveying the New Testament, for in-class or homeschool use, and a course on Christian ethics. These have similar formats.
Here are the basic rules of the game for all my classes, a few (strong) suggestions on writing papers, pointers for presentations, advice for students preparing to preach, peer review guidelines, FAQ's, and forms for students reviewing other students' assignments.
Here are syllabi for the courses I have taught over the years at schools and churches:
... features writings for peer-reviewed scholarly journals, edited books, and popular publications:
... features formal addresses I have delivered at meetings of professional societies and at academic campus events:
... features sermons, chapel talks, articles for the school newspaper, and unpublished writings:
... introduces my books and some reading suggestions in my field.
