MDiv (Princeton Theological Seminary) 
PhD (University of Chicago)


Kris Culp works in constructive theology. She is the author of Vulnerability and Glory: A Theological Account (Westminster John Knox Press, 2010) and the editor of The Responsibility of the Church for Society and Other Essays by H. Richard Niebuhr (Westminster John Knox, 2008). She studies protest and transformation as religious sensibilities and projects, partly as enacted in political and cultural movements, and particularly as thematized in contemporary feminist and African-American theologies and, historically, in Protestant theologies. She is also interested in theological writing, and, specifically, how reflexivity and critical distance are incorporated into multiple genres of theological writing. She has written on protest and resistance as theological themes, the use of fiction in theological thinking, a theology of Christian community, feminist and womanist theologies, and “experience” in contemporary theology.
