Current Research

  • The relationship between two leading figures within the Puritan/Nonconformist community of seventeenth-century England: Richard Baxter (1615-1691) and John Owen (1616-1683). This is the focus of a book I am writing, which is under contract to Ashgate, for publication in 2011.
  • Working on a collaborative project to edit a scholarly edition of Richard Baxter’s eight-hundred-page autobiography, the Reliquiae Baxterianae. It will be published in several volumes by Oxford University Press, in 2016.
