Austin Stevenson​

Before coming to PBA, Dr Stevenson was a junior research fellow at the University of Oxford, where he studied Christian vaccine hesitancy in collaboration with the Oxford Vaccine Group and the Vaccine Knowledge Project. He has taught theology at Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Theology, the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, and Ridley Hall. 

Dr. Stevenson studied music in college and served in full-time ministry as a worship pastor for five years before pursuing graduate education in theology. He is passionate about theological education, bridging the gap between systematic theology and biblical scholarship, and reclaiming the riches of the Christian tradition for contemporary theological reflection. His research specializes in the resourcement of classical Christian thought in conversation with an interdisciplinary range of topics, including theological hermeneutics, historical Jesus studies, public health, literature, and the natural sciences. He has presented at conferences in the US, UK, Canada, and Europe, and published articles and edited special issues of peer-reviewed journals including Modern Theology, Scottish Journal of Theology, Journal of Theological Interpretation, and Crux. His first monograph is forthcoming in February with T&T Clark. He and his wife Katherine are originally from Wyoming, and their daughter Sophia was born in England.

Degrees: B.M., Colorado Christian University; M.A., Th.M., Regent College (Canada); Ph.D., University of Cambridge (United Kingdom).
