Justification: A Guide for the Perplexed

My review of Justification: A Guide for the Perplexed by Alan J. Spence has been published in the Journal of Reformed Theology. Post-print version posted here with permission.

God Without Parts

The latest issue of Themelios includes my review of James Dolezal’s God Without Parts.
