Tom Seat is a PhD student in Religion and Society. He graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University's John Wesley Honors College (BA, summa cum laude). A Teach For America alum, Tom also earned an MDiv and a ThM from Princeton Theological Seminary, where he was the recipient of The Jean Anne Swope and James L. Mechem Award in Christian Ethics. Tom's academic field is World Christianity, and his research interests include the history of Christian missions, methodology in the study of World Christianity, the anthropology of Christianity, conversion, and ethnographic studies of non-Western Christian communities.
“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
