A PhD student in the Practical Theology department at Princeton Theological Seminary focusing in the field of Homiletics, Mason Lee holds the Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from York College (2010), the Master of Divinity degree from Abilene Christian University (2014), and the Master of Sacred Theology from the Boston University School of Theology (2015). With nearly a decade of experience in ministry serving churches in Kansas, Texas, Massachusetts, and New Jersey, Mason draws on his ministry background as a resource for his academic work. Mason’s research interests include hermeneutical theory, theologies of preaching, and theories of practice, with his primary research exploring the relationship between preaching and virtue theory, focusing on the existence of “homiletical virtues” and their importance for the faithful practice of preaching. Mason holds memberships in the Academy of Homiletics, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Association of Practical Theology.
