Sam Davidson

Sam Davidson is a PhD student in systematic theology, focusing primarily upon interdisciplinary approaches to theological anthropology and psychological phenomenology. He is interested in developing systematic frameworks for understanding and approaching mental illness and psychological pathologies, especially in conversation with “dialectical theology,” broadly conceived. Davidson earned a BA in religion from Baylor University and a Master of Divinity from George W. Truett Theological Seminary in Waco, Texas, before completing a Master of Theology by research (with distinction) from The University of Edinburgh. His recently completed master's thesis draws creatively upon contemporary phenomenology, psychological research, and Bonhoeffer’s doctrine of human fallenness to develop a theological phenomenology of agoraphobia based upon personal narrative.
