Joshua Davis has been a Visiting Assistant Professor of Religion at The University of the South and Visiting Assistant Professor of Catholic Studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He has also been an adjunct instructor of scripture, history, and theology at the Loyola University Institute for Pastoral Studies (Chicago).
Dr. Davis’ scholarly work focuses on contemporary theologies of grace and creation and he has special interests in the intimate relationship between theology, spiritual practice, and creative social transformation. His most recent publication is the edited collection, with Douglas Harink, Apocalyptic and the Future of Theology: With and Beyond J. Louis Martyn (Cascade Press). His first book, Waiting and Being: Creation, Freedom, and Grace in Western Theology (Fortress Press) will appear this Fall, and he is currently completing a monograph entitled, On Providence: Metaphysics and Typology (Cascade Press), and is writing the introduction for a new reprinted edition of Hans Frei’s The Identity of Jesus Christ (Cascade Press). He plans next to focus attention on developing the doctrinal significance of the baptismal theology of the ’79 Prayer Book, and to do so in terms of the idea notion of the Whole Christ (totus Christus).
