Crosson Fellow (Spring 2018)

Bruce Lindley McCormack is the Charles Hodge Professor at Princeton Theological Seminary and Director of its Center for Barth Studies. He holds an MDiv degree from Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri and the PhD degree from Princeton Seminary. His book, Karl Barth’s Critically Realistic Dialectical Theology (1995) won for him the Karl Barth Prize from the Union of Evangelical Churches (Germany) in 1998 and led as well to an honorary doctorate from the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. Formerly a member of the faculty at New College, Edinburgh, he has taught at Princeton Seminary for twenty-six years. His teaching in both institutions has focused upon the Reformed tradition (Calvin through Barth), Reformed Confessions, and Reformed doctrines. He has long had an interest in grass-roots ecumenical dialogue and has participated in four conferences organized by the Dominican House of Studies (Washington, D.C.) – two in cooperation with the Center for Barth Studies.


While at the Center, Bruce will be working on a Reformed version of kenotic Christology which will, when published, bear the title “The Humility of the Eternal Son.”
