About

headshot 1

While a native Californian, I’ve called Chicago home since 2000.  I’m wonderfully married to Cyd and have two boys, Soren and Tennyson.

I serve as a co-pastor at Life on the Vine.  I co-authored, Prodigal Christianity, with David Fitch, and recently published Transcending Subjects: Augustine, Hegel, and Theology.

I am also affiliate professor of theology at Northern Seminary.  You can follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

My writing focuses on the church, theology and philosophy, politics and culture.  My goal is that everything here would make theology and mission accessible for everyone.   I’m all over the place but hopefully you’ll find some of it interesting and helpful.

I post twice a week (roughly) and I would love to have you join the conversation.

Subscribe and I’ll send you a gift about how God’s glory doesn’t mean God hates you—the first chapter of the book I’m writing.

  1. Geoffrey having just read your insightful article in Telos Fall 2012 I’m prompted to point you towards other stuff going on in terms of thinking the relation between politics and the political. Without wishing so sound like a tacky self-promoter I think you would find my Design as Politics of interest (Berg NY, 2011).

  2. Hey Geoff, I’m trying to stay off twitter and facebook for Lent and I couldn’t find an email address for you at Northern Seminary. I live near Alexandria and I would really like to help create a way for people with limited means to stay with hosts in the area for free instead of drop $100/night for a hotel at Missio Alliance. I could host several people at my house for instance. If you already have something like this in place, I would like to support it. Otherwise, I could get in touch with some of my fellow Methodist pastors from the area and we could probably find hospitality for a good number of people coming. It would be good kingdom-building and cross-fertilization for us to break bread in our homes with the people coming to this conference. So let me know if I can be helpful. I’ll try sending this to your facebook too.
