He is the author of numerous books and articles including Desire, Market and Religion (SCM Press, 2007), The Subject, Capitalism, and Religion (Palgrave, 2011), and Beyond the Spirit of Empire (SCM Press, 2009), co-authored with Néstor Míguez and Joerg Rieger.

    Greeting! I live in Atlanta and I am a prospective student. Currently, I attend McAfee School of Theology, but looking for an institution that will better fit my needs for my spiritual calling. I received information about you’ll from a representative that attended the Proctor Conference in February of this year. I am extremely interested in this upcoming event. Is there any way for me to live stream this sermon?
