PhD Candidate | Theology (Systematic Theology)

Andrew J. Peterson

Andrew J. Peterson, MDiv '15, entered the doctoral program at Princeton Theological Seminary in systematic theology in 2015. He earned a BA in religion and philosophy from Hope College and an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary. From 2018-2019 he was a Fulbright Scholar at the Eberhard-Karls Universität in Tübingen, Germany.

Peterson’s research interests center on the atonement and the dogmatic and philosophical issues involved in theorizing the reconciliation of God with particular individuals. He is currently writing a dissertation on Protestant accounts of the atonement with a special eye toward their ethical and political import. He also has strong interests in moral theory, eudaemonism, philosophy of mind, pragmatic accounts of language and moral norms, and the doctrines of creation, providence, sanctification, and predestination. He teaches courses on Christian and Jewish Scriptures, World religions, Christianity, and religion in America at Rowan University, where he is an adjunct instructor.

“To be in a community where I got to hear so many different perspectives—that was profound for me. I’m grateful for the curiosity, for the practice of learning that was cultivated for me at Seminary.”
