Welcome Back, Vanhoozer

Kevin Vanhoozer

Prior to joining the Wheaton Graduate School as the Blanchard Professor of Theology in the fall of 2009, Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer served as research professor of systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Deerfield, Illinois (from 1998 to 2009), where he trained pastor-theologians and mentored doctoral students.

Today, TEDS welcomes him back.

At the divinity school faculty meeting on Wednesday, November 9, Dr. Tite Tiénou, dean of TEDS, and Dr. John S. Feinberg, chair of the biblical and systematic theology department, announced the return of Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer. He will assume the position he filled before his three-year departure from TEDS—that of research professor of systematic theology.

Dr. Craig Williford, president of Trinity International University, said that he is “delighted that Dr. Kevin and Sylvie Vanhoozer are rejoining our Trinity learning community. Dr. Vanhoozer’s significant contribution to God’s redemptive global work as one of the world’s leading theologians expands the influence of Trinity for the sake of the gospel.”

Vanhoozer is the author or editor of many books, including The Drama of Doctrine (which was named best book in theology in the 2006 Christianity Today Book Awards), Everyday Theology, Is There a Meaning in This Text?, and the award-winning Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible.

Vanhoozer is a native Californian and is married with two daughters.
