I’m an aspiring constructive systematic theologian.


I’m thrilled to announce a new Writings. category: Luctor. It is an ambitious project at theological commentary on Scripture, by yours truly. You can read about the inspiration for its name and vision here.

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.
