Long revered as one of the world’s preeminent Christian philosophers, Nicholas Wolterstorff is a product of what he calls the “renaissance in Christian philosophy” fathered by Calvin College. After studying at Calvin College and Harvard, Wolterstorff returned to teach at Calvin — himself fathering a new wave in the “renaissance” there — before becoming Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale University.

The God We Worship

Wolterstorff’s newest book, The God We Worship, is a brief treatise that breaks new ground in the field of liturgical theology. Based on the 2013 Kantzer lectures, The God We Worship explores not just liturgy itself but the conceptions of God implicit in liturgy, meditating on the reality of a “God who listens.”

Today Wolterstorff lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is both Noah Porter Professor Emeritus at Yale and a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. He is the author of numerous Eerdmans books, including Lament for a Son, one of Eerdmans’ best-selling titles, and Justice in Love, which will be released in paperback this May.
