After being awarded an MA in Systematic Theology from TEDS in 2014, Joel enrolled at the University of Toronto to pursue a PhD in Systematic Theology, studying at Wycliffe College with Ephraim Radner. Having completed the coursework and residency requirements of the program, Joel returned to TEDS in the summer of 2016 to assume the role of Project & Communications manager for the Henry Center. His current research is on the role of scripture in Thomas Aquinas’s doctrine of divine freedom. He is the editor with Geoffrey Fulkerson of Science and the Doctrine of Creation: The Approaches of Ten Modern Theologians (IVP Academic, 2021), and has published in Nova et Vetera and the Journal of Theological Interpretation.
Joel and his wife Amber live in Chicago with their two sons, Matthias and Isaac.
