Andrew J. Peterson entered the doctoral program at Princeton Theological Seminary in 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. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame.
Peterson’s research interests center on the atonement and the dogmatic, moral, and philosophical issues involved in theorizing the reconciliation of God with humanity. His dissertation offers accounts of forgiveness and sacrifice meant to repair Protestant accounts of the atonement with a special eye toward their ethical and political import. He also has strong interests in christology, moral theory, eudaemonism, philosophy of mind, pragmatic accounts of language and moral norms, and the doctrines of creation, providence, sanctification, and predestination.
Since 2017, he has taught courses on Christianity, Christian and Jewish Scriptures, world religions, and the history of religion in America at Rowan University, where he is an adjunct instructor.
