(biblical studies) has co-authored volume 1 of a three-volume Dictionary of Daily Life in Biblical and Post-Biblical Antiquity (Hendrickson, 2014). Three Gordon alumni (Dr. John DeFelice ’91, Dr. John Kutsko ’86 and Andrew Pottorf ’11) assisted with this “A-to-Da” volume, which has entries about such widely-ranging topics as birds, boats, and barbers in ancient cultures in the Old and New Testament context.

In 2014 Dr. Wilson also published
Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage: A Christian Theology of Roots and Renewal (Eerdmans), a sequel to his 1989 Our Father Abraham. In Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage he calls for the church to restore, renew and protect its foundations by understanding its origins in Judaism.
