I’m an aspiring constructive systematic theologian.


Here’s a video I made with a friend sharing my thoughts a year after my mom’s passing: A Conversation About Death.

Finally, the first real Luctor. piece: Remember Unto Life, reflections on Deuteronomy 1-4.

Welcome, friends!

Writing is an art. Posting it online for the world to see is vulnerability. Only narcissists, fools, or secure persons will do such a thing. I’m a mixture of all three.

But as the words above in large font read: I’m an aspiring constructive systematic theologian. I am already, but I continually aspire to be a better, sharper, and more compassionate theologian. I want to be constructive in my work, not just productive. Meaning, I want to write (and confess) things that build up rather than take space. I also want to be systematic in my approach. I steer towards coherence while also carrying that humble flexibility for brokenness, bewilderment, and beauty. Lastly, I am a theologian, more specifically a Christian theologian. The God of Israel incarnated in Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, who pours out the Holy Spirit on all flesh is my obsession.

Friends and strangers, I hope you will see me in my writings. I hope you’ll see Jesus—that precious crucified one—in them as well.
