Revd Stephen John Wright BA (Hons.), Grad. Dip. Arts, MTh, PhD
Lecturer in Christian Theology and Wesley Studies
I am interested in a broad range of topics including christology, the doctrine of God, theology and the arts, Wesleyan theology, divine transcendence, the doctrine of creation, and theological language.
I recently arrived from Australia to teach theology at NTC. Having forsaken the southern sunshine, I distract myself from the intemperate English weather with books, coffee, and conversation. I was raised in the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Australia, and undertook my first degrees at the denominational training college in Melbourne: Kingsley College. After moving to Sydney to engage in pastoral ministry, I studied for an MTh with the Catholic Institute of Sydney, before pursuing PhD studies in theology at Charles Sturt University. My doctoral research saw me construct a theology of beauty in dialogue with the work of Robert W. Jenson.
I teach and supervise in the areas of theology and historical theology. I am interested in a broad range of topics including christology, the doctrine of God, theology and the arts, Wesleyan theology, divine transcendence, the doctrine of creation, and theological language. I welcome inquiries from students interested in studying or researching in these or other areas of theology.
I publish articles and reviews in a variety of forums. I edited Robert W. Jenson’s most recent book of essays: Theology as Revisionary Metaphysics: Essays on God and Creation (Cascade, 2014). And my doctoral thesis has been published as Dogmatic Aesthetics: A theology of beauty in dialogue with Robert W. Jenson (Fortress Press, 2014).
