Amy Plantinga Pauw majored in philosophy and French at Calvin College. She also studied at Calvin Seminary before completing her M.Div. at Fuller Seminary in 1984. In her doctoral studies at Yale she became particularly interested in the writings of Jonathan Edwards. Since joining the faculty at Louisville Seminary in 1990, she has taught a variety of courses including Christology, ecclesiology, feminist ethics and the theologies of Jonathan Edwards, Karl Barth, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. She has a growing interest in theologies of the global south and in the theological interpretation of Scripture

Dr. Pauw says that Louisville Seminary is a place where she can explore, along with her students, issues and ideas that are vital to the Church’s future. “The excitement of teaching theology is at least two-fold for me. One part is conveying to students a sense of the diversity and elasticity of the Christian tradition on the perennial issues of the faith: How do we know God? Who is Jesus Christ? How is God involved in the world’s suffering? What do we hope for? The other part is to encourage students to be theologians themselves, to join the church’s ongoing conversation about how to be faithful to God and each other in our time and place.”

Dr. Pauw, is a consulting editor for Westminster John Knox Press’ new theological commentary series and serves on various other editorial boards. She is writing a theological commentary on Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Her books include The Supreme Harmony of All: Jonathan Edwards’ Trinitarian Theology, Making Time for God: Daily Devotions for Children and Families to Share (with Susan Garrett), and Essays in Reformed Feminist and Womanist Dogmatics (with Serene Jones).
