I'm the Craig Family Distinguished Professor of Reformed Theology and Justice.


For many years, I taught at Union Seminary in Richmond, Virginia. My scholarly interests include contemporary theology and ethics, as well as the history of theology and ethics, particularly in America.

I'm the co-general editor of the multi-volume series, The Library of Theological Ethics. My recent books include: Theology for Liberal Presbyterians and Other Endangered Species, Reforming Protestantism: Christian Commitment in Today's World, and Hopeful Realism: Recovering the Poetry of Theology.
