Educated at Yale University (BA) and Princeton Seminary (MDiv), he has taught at Princeton Seminary, Princeton University, Eastern University, and Luther Seminary. His dissertation explores Eberhard Jüngel’s account of truth and its relationship to the doctrine of the Trinity, against the background of distinctively modern questions about epistemology, metaphysics, and the doctrine of God.

He continues to be active as a teacher and preacher in congregational contexts.
