Revd Dr Jordan Hillebert
A little about me
Originally from the States, I moved to Scotland in 2011 to pursue a PhD in theology at the University of St Andrews under the supervision of Professor John Webster. In 2015 I took up the post of Tutor in Theology at St Michael’s College before joining the team at St Padarn’s in 2016 as Residentiary Tutor and Tutor in Theology. From 2016-2019, I also served as Assistant Curate at Christ Church Roath Park. As well as teaching in the areas of Christian theology and ethics, I oversee the fulltime community of ministerial candidates at St Padarn’s Cardiff. I live in Llandaff with my wife Krisi, our daughter Keira, and an ill-behaved beagle named Willow.
My research interests
My research interests lie broadly in the areas of systematic theology and modern Christian thought. My recent work has focused especially on the theology of Henri de Lubac – I am the author of Being in Mystery: Henri de Lubac and the Drama of Human Existence (University of Notre Dame Press, 2021) and editor of the T&T Clark Companion to Henri de Lubac (2017). My other interests include the theological legacies of Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, theological anthropology, the nature of theology, the doctrine of creation, theology and ecological/environmental ethics, prayer and contemplation, and theological responses to modernity. I am always delighted to hear from prospective MPhil/PhD students interested in the above or related areas.
