At DITA10, the 10th-anniversary celebration of Duke’s Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (September 2019), Malcolm Guite and I gave a joint plenary talk on Creation and New Creation in J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
The talk is now available to listen to at the DITA10 website.
I’ve also done some interviews on theology and the arts with Closer to Truth, which are available on their YouTube channel.
The Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University has named me its Alan Richardson Fellow 2020-21.
The Alan Richardson Fellowship is endowed ‘to promote research into the exposition and defence of Christian doctrine within the context of contemporary thought and its challenges’. It is awarded annually.
I will be on research leave from St Andrews during the Martinmas Semester 2020/21, and will visit Durham regularly during that time, while continuing to lead New Directions in Philosophical Theology and supervise PhD students in St Andrews.
I am grateful to Professor Chris Insole and the department for this opportunity, and look forward very much to working with them.
