Research

Who are we?  This question, one of the most important theological questions, is the main one that motivates my research interests.  Specifically, I am interested in questions that deal with such topics as free will, grace, original sin, sin, salvation, and predestination.

These general questions began to be addressed in a serious way by the Church during the Pelagian Controversy in the fifth century.  This controversy was arguably the most important historical event that helped establish Christianity’s understanding of the human person.  The implications from it, therefore, have reverberated down to our time.

Currently, I am writing an introduction to the Pelagian Controversy that is under contract with Wipf and Stock.
