Andy, a good list!

King's has also been slowly expanding its department, I think they have almost twice the number of teaching staff now as at the time I left in 2010, with new expertise in Patristics and Medieval Christianity (both Doctrine and Church History were almost exclusively 'modern' while I was there). They appear to have finally expanded the religious studies wing beyond Abrahamic faiths, too, and I would note the importance of their staff in the field of social scientific study of religion, which also fits into the TRS department.

I would add the University of Leeds to this list as Dr Rachel Muers is doing increasingly interesting stuff, and the university is a major centre of expertise on inter faith relations.

Karen Kilby ought to be included in the list of key people at Nottingham.


With apologies, I notice that Karen Kilby seems to have moved to Durham!

A good, but very incomplete list, and poorer for it. It only lists some universities. See this guide for others left out: http://www.biblesociety.org.uk/uploads/files/our_work/GUCG_2012-2013.pdf.

And no mention of any of the excellent university accredited colleges? London School of Theology (3 Profs. on staff), St Mellitus, St John's?


Good morning Andy -- Just to let you and your readers know that among those moving to take up new posts this summer is Paul Nimmo, who is taking up a Chair in Systematic Theology here at the University of Aberdeen. We're delighted to welcome Paul and to continue to develop our strengths in the field of Christian dogmatics.

Thanks so much for this list! It's great that Chester is on it! (But I *would* say that)...


shouldn't this be titled "where i would study if i wasn't going to Spurgeon's?

Catalin Croitor

Is the order within your list intended?
In other words, is that a top 10?


Andy, thanks for this list. I'll be sure to pass it along to interested friends! I would only hasten to add that Aberdeen is also a fantastic school to study modern dogmatic & systematic theology. Phil Ziegler is doing some exciting work at the intersection of Dogmatic theology and Apocalyptic. And while Aberdeen is already an exciting place to study Bonhoeffer with Bernd Wannenwetsch, Phil Ziegler, and Mike Mawson, with the recent addition of Prof. Nimmo to Tom Greggs (who is also published on Bonhoeffer!), and Don Wood, it will be one of the premier programs in the UK for the study of dogmatics in the tradition of Barth, as well.


It's spelled "Duncan Forrester", and sadly he is no longer working.
