This year I was invited to present a paper on "Prayer in Q" at the 2017 Q Conference in Graz, Austria (March 23-25). My paper was entitled "The Promise of Providence and the Problem of the Parables: Revisiting Prayer in the Sayings Gospel Q" and explored the literary and historical relationship between the Enochic Book of Parables and Q. Many thanks to Christoph Heil and the University of Graz for the invitation and hospitality!

My new article, "'Knowledge is Truth'': A Course in Miracles as Neo-Gnostic Scripture," just published in Gnosis: Journal of Gnostic Studies, discusses A Course in Miracles - a book allegedly received from "Jesus" by Helen Schucman, a psychologist at Columbia Medical Center in NYC in the 1960s.
