This page contains a number of things that I have written over the years, which I trust continue to be of value to students of Thai church and missionary history. It is not a bibliography as such, but I have retained a bibliographic format for each item. For an English-language bibliography of my work in Thai church history see the Bibliographies page.

History of the Laurel Presbyterian Church. Laurel, Maryland: Laurel Presbyterian Church, 1987. (Electronic Version) [PDF]
Note: while this item is not at all about Thai church history, it deserves a place here because it was in Laurel while working on my M.A. that I "practiced" doing local church histories of the kind I envisaged doing in Thailand.

Note: like the history of the Laurel Presbyterian Church (above), this item is not at all about Thai church history, but it deserves a place here because it was my first experience in writing a local church history, which became a major concern of my in my research in Thai church and missionary history.
