Gary teaches Old Testament, Biblical Theology and Preaching, and preaches most weeks in college chapel. In 2013, along with Phil Campbell, Gary wrote Saving Eutychus, a book on preaching. He has published various chapters and articles, such as Jesus Betrayed and Crucified in His Mission: Jesus in the Gospel of Luke (eds. D.A. Carson & K. Nielsen), the addresses from the 2013 Gospel Coalition conference. He has also contributed to the ESV Men’s Devotional Bible and has recently completed  a “Biblical Theology of Prayer’”, a forthcoming volume to be published in IVP’s NSBT series.  He is currently working on a major commentary on 1 & 2 Kings.
