He publishes in the areas of biblical hermeneutics, particularly lauded for his work on the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur, Christian spirituality, as well as other relevant topics. His publications include: Living Spirituality; Living Hermeneutics in Motion: An Analysis and Evaluation of Paul Ricoeur's Contribution to Biblical Hermeneutics; Living Apocalypse: A Revelation Reader and A Guide for the Perplexed; "Language at the Frontiers of Language," in After Pentecost: Language and Biblical Interpretation; "Ricoeur on History, Fiction and Biblical Hermeneutics," in 'Behind' the Text: History and Biblical Interpretation; "Evangelicalism and Philosophy," in The Futures of Evangelicalism, and several journal articles, one for example being, "Scripture, Science and Hermeneutics."
Greg lectures on many topics, notably Christian spirituality, the Interpretation of the Bible, and Science and Theology, from the perspective of a biblical worldview. While he focuses on theology, philosophy, and hermeneutics, Greg has the opportunity to tutor students as they come to the Swiss L'Abri seeking answers to many of life's serious and challenging questions. His times as a tutor and mentor, as well as his extensive academic research, provide the framework to write about his experiences of life in community with God and others.
