Post-Doctoral Fellow in Science and Theology, Regent College
David Robinson is the Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science at Regent College, 2018–19. This role follows the completion of his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology and Ethics at the University of Edinburgh in 2017. David’s research focuses on the intersection of evolutionary biology and theology, particularly the question of how natural causation is described vis-à-vis divine providence. His interests also include the philosophy of science and criticisms of natural theology in the 19th and 20th centuries. David is the author of Christ and Revelatory Community in Bonhoeffer’s Reception of Hegel (Mohr Siebeck, 2018), which is based on his PhD thesis. David lives in Coquitlam with his wife Jolene, who works as Marketing and Communications Manager for Jewish Family Services, and their three-year-old daughter Naomi.
Funding for the position of Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science has been provided by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
