Works in progress also include a project on Job and Christian pessimism, another on Howard Thurman’s mystical theology, and a third on Christian social ontology and antiracist theologies of “peoplehood.” He earned his B.A. in philosophy from Boise State University, an S.T.M. from Yale Divinity School, and a Th.D. in Theology and Ethics from Duke Divinity School.
