From the Professor

I joined the faculty at DSPT in 2022. Before arriving in Berkeley, I served as a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa and postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Contextual Biblical Interpretation at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I also taught biblical and theological studies for a number of years at Booth University College in Winnipeg, Canada.

While my theological interests range broadly across systematic, historical, and biblical theology, the core of my academic research to this point has focused on the life and thought of St. Augustine. My first book, Rhetoric and Scripture in Augustine’s Homiletic Strategy (Brill, 2020), provides the most comprehensive account of Augustine’s preaching strategy in his sermons to date. My current book project, tentatively titled Augustine and the Transcendent Self, investigates Augustine’s understanding and representation of the self in his Confessions.

When I am not reading, writing, or discussing theology, you will likely find me at the hockey rink, watching movies with my wife, or embarking on wild adventures with our three sons.
