Theologian, pursuing a greater intercourse between theology, anthropology, and philosophy.

I adamantly hold to a position of 'mere Christianity'. I value simple trust, listening to the Spirit, obedience, and character formation, over intelligence, rational knowledge, and academic education.

My chief interests theologically lie in metatheology (theological method, theological epistemology, epistemological ethics), spiritual and moral development, trust & obedience, spiritual disciplines, theology proper (esp. the character of God), the Priesthood of All Believers, theological ontology (e.g. ecstatic and eccentric identity), pneumatology, injustice, apocatastasis, and the intersections of theology with psychology and anthropology generally, as well as philosophy. Concerning those intersections, my favorite subjects are infinity, finiteness, death, existential anxiety, terror management theory, sexual psychology, metacognition, epistemology, imagination, narrative, example, culture, the vampiric power of social organizations (think 'principalities and powers'), psychopathy, objectification, theory of mind, empathy, philosophical physics, et al.

My influences are George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, Arthur C. McGill, Søren Kierkegaard, Richard Beck, Andrew Murray, William Stringfellow, Dallas Willard, Ernest Becker, N.T. Wright, Wayne Jacobsen, René Girard, William James, Paul K. Moser, and the Anabaptists, et al. I did my thesis on psychological manipulation methods of the cults.
