I study systematic theology, modern & postmodern Christian thought and Christian history here at Boston College.  The primary foci of my current research are the theologies of Robert Jenson and Hans Urs von Balthasar, as experiments in and permutations of the Barthian trajectory in 20th century theology.  Other investigations of mine peruse the systematic loci of pneumatology and trinity, ecumenical theology at the potential confluence of Catholic, Evangelical & Pentecostal traditions, Biblical theology, comparative Abrahamic theology and World Christianity—Christianity in Latin America.  I live in Manchester, NH, with my theological co-conspirator, Nichole Flores, who teaches at St. Anselm College.
