The Virtual Office Of Christopher Price

Welcome to my Virtual Office. I am a Christian of the Charismatic persuasion. I am also a lawyer in private practice in Los Angeles. My formal training in historical studies is limited to a minor in that subject from the University of Houston. Hence my onscreen name of "Layman." I have, however, devoted a substantial amount of time and resources to the study of early Christianity and the New Testament. Gathered together here are links to my articles that have been posted on various sites. Provided at the bottom of the page are links to audio files of my radio appearances. If you have any comments or questions, please email me at laymantwo at

If you would like to read my book reviews or lists of books helpful for studying the New Testament or apologetics, visit my area at Amazon. Also, I regularly post shorter essays at the Christian CADRE blog. You can check out my personal library online as well.
