Miroslav Volf

Miroslav Volf (born September 25, 1956) is a Croatian Protestant theologian, intellectual, and public speaker, and “one of the most celebrated theologians of our day.” Having received two advanced degrees under the famed German theologian Jürgen Moltmann (Dr. theol. and Dr. theol. habil.), Volf has, through his work, forged a theology that has earned him the designation “a theologian of the bridge.” The main thrust of his theology is to bring the reality and the shape of God’s Trinitarian life and love to bear on multiple divisions in today’s world—between denominations, faiths, and ethnic groups as well as between the realms of the sacred and the secular (in particular business, politics, and globalization processes). Having taught at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in his native Osijek, Croatia (1979–80, 1983–90), and Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California (1990–1998), Volf currently serves as the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School and directs the Yale Center for Faith and Culture.
