Apart from when my next book comes out, I'm not intending to add new stuff to this site. New articles by me and new resources I discover, will be put on A Cry For Justice, which is where I blog with Pastor Jeff Crippen. Occasionally, when I have a very long item, it will be put on my Not Under Bondage Blog, but I will also 'flag' it by a brief post at A Cry For Justice.
But if you only want to receive occasional updates about my work, please subscribe to my e-newsletter. I promise not to flood your inbox!

Among those most hurt by the uncertainty and lack of consensus are Christian victims of marital abuse (otherwise known as domestic violence, battering, intimate partner abuse, family violence). Such people often think they must choose between two unpleasant alternatives: endure abuse, or face condemnation by God and church people for disobeying the Bible.

Maschil is a Hebrew word which is thought to mean "prudent" or "insightful". It occurs in Proverbs and Daniel, and is a subtitle in some of the Psalms.
Maschil Press aims to promote insight into the biblical world view, and to expose and advocate against sub-biblical views which have caused pain and grief to the Christian community and the wider population.
Maschil Press does not accept manuscript submissions or query letters from authors or agents. At this stage no change is envisaged for this submission policy.
Expressions of interest regarding cross-promotional arrangements (such as flyer exchanges) between other publishers and Maschil Press will be considered on their merits.
