Personal profile

Research Interests

Christian theology from historical, systematic, and constructive perspectives. Her work is focused on German intellectual history with primary interest in the theology of Martin Luther, the philosophy and theology of Friedrich Schleiermacher, and the flourishing of scholarship on Luther and on religion in early twentieth-century Germany, known as the Luther Renaissance. She is also interested in ways in which theologians can make knowledge claims about God; in theology’s conversation with the modern study of religion; and in how the theological perspective contributes to the humanities. Another area of her research and publication activity is biblical reception.
