Research subject: Religious Studies


Presently I'm writing a book about the international discussion between the so called "New Atheists" and the theologians representing traditional Christian apologetics. I will in this book analyze and critically asses the common framework of this discussion.
I'm also writing a homiletical textbook which focuses on the religious language used in sermons.
