Luke Timothy Johnson

Luke Timothy Johnson's work appeals to both traditionalists and innovators. He is deeply committed to the historic faith of the church and is acclaimed for his rebuttals of the Jesus Seminar, whose scholarship he calls "bogus." But, as a Catholic educator and a former Catholic priest, he has also ruffled some feathers with his push for changes in church teaching on women and homosexuality.

The Revelatory Body

His new book, The Revelatory Body: Theology as Inductive Art, extends his broad appeal, displaying both his commitment to pursuing the revelation of the living God and his proclivity for fresh thinking. Johnson argues that the body is the "privileged arena" of God's self-disclosure in the world. God's continuing revelation in human experience resists claims to systematic knowledge and makes theology more an indicative art than, as often presented, a deductive science.

With The Revelatory Body, Luke Timothy Johnson has now published thirty books. A former Benedictine monk and ordained priest, he is Robert W. Woodruff Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at the Candler School of Theology, Emory University, and is a sought-after lecturer. He won the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in Religion in 2011 for his book Among the Gentiles: Greco-Roman Religion and Christianity.
