Trinitarian Reformational

An integrated vision

About me

I am a Church of England pastor in Kent, married, with two sons.

In 2012 I was awarded a PhD by King’s College London for a thesis giving a trinitarian comparison of the reformational philosophies of Herman Dooyeweerd and Dirk Vollenhoven.

My previous PhD was in 17th Century English History (Commonwealth period) at Cambridge University.

I have been engaged in peacebuilding programmes in South Africa (1986-1991), Rwanda (1994-1999) and Sudan (1999-2002). Currently I am  involved in working to set up peacebuilding programmes in Ukraine and Korea under the aegis of Relational Peacebuilding Initiatives.

I have also contributed to the book, Jubilee Manifesto, of the Jubilee Centre , Cambridge.

Previously I also did a thesis on the Trinitarian theology of Robert W. Jenson at King’s College London under the late Professor Colin Gunton; and also contributed a chapter on Jenson’s theology of history to the Jenson Festschrift: Trinity, Time and Church.

My driving passion is the integration of Trinitarian and Reformational thought, not just an academic concern but something which drives everthing I do: it is about the call of the Father in the Son through the power of the Holy Spirit in our creation, redemption and bringing to glory. A good introduction to my thinking is the paper What on Earth is the Trinity?

  2. I’m interested to know with whom you are studying at King’s College. I am becoming interested in Reformational thought, so much so that I’m considering attempting a doctoral degree on the subject. So, if you wouldn’t mind, please let me know which faculty at King’s is able to accommodate your studies.

    Grace & peace,

  3. Dear Andrew,

    I am enrolled at the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, and my supervisor is Dr Paul Janz. Paul is helpful not through his knowledge of Reformational Philosophy (although he is on a crash course in this through supervising me!) but through his acute philosophical mind. I would strongly recommend him as a supervisor.

    The wider context of doing research in the Department is the Research Institute for Systematic Theology (bizarrely made referred to in Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code – for which I hasten to say I did not spend good money, but bought it at a village fete). This meets fortnightly.

    King’s is a good place to meet and there are a lot of interesting people. There is also a small Reformational group starting to meet, not at King’s per se, but in London, convened by Rudi Hayward.
