David Robinson

Post-Doctoral Fellow in Science and Theology
BA (Briercrest College), MDiv (Regent College), PhD (University of Edinburgh)
David Robinson is the Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science at Regent College for 2018-19. This role follows the completion of his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology and Ethics at the University of Edinburgh in 2017. David’s research focuses on the intersection of evolutionary biology and theology, particularly the question of how natural causation is described vis-à-vis divine providence. His interests also include the philosophy of science and criticisms of natural theology in the 19th and 20th centuries.

David is the author of Christ and Revelatory Community in Bonhoeffer’s Reception of Hegel (Mohr Siebeck, 2018), which is based on his PhD thesis. The book includes material on Bonhoeffer’s and Hegel’s use of the Genesis account of creation and fall in their portrayals of emergent human consciousness. Selected chapters and other essays have been published in Modern Theology, Scottish Journal of Theology, Studies in Christian Ethics and Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics. 

David has previously lectured at the University of Edinburgh and has presented at conferences including the Society for the Study of Theology (UK) and the International Bonhoeffer Congress. While completing his PhD, he worked as Postgraduate Conference Convener for the Society for the Study of Christian Ethics (UK) and as website host for Kathryn Tanner’s 2016 Gifford Lectures, “Christianity and the New Spirit of Capitalism.” 

Alongside his academic work, David has worked in Anglican and Episcopal ministry since his ordination in 2009, serving congregations in both Ottawa and Edinburgh. This role has included teaching Christian ethics as an Associate Tutor with the Scottish Episcopal Institute.

David lives in Coquitlam with his wife Jolene, who works as Marketing and Communications Manager for Jewish Family Services, and their three-year-old daughter Naomi.
