Assistant Professor of Theology, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Edwin Chr. van Driel joined the faculty in 2009. Previously, he taught for two years at Fordham University. A native of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he holds master’s degrees in theology and philosophy from Utrecht University, the Netherlands, and an M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. in religious studies (theology) from Yale University.

Van Driel’s current interest is in Christology, eschatology, and ecclesiology. His Incarnation Anyway (OUP 2008) analyzes and defends the idea that the incarnation is not contingent upon human sin, but is rather central to creation’s beginning and eschaton. His next book project focuses on Resurrection, Ascension, and Pentecost, and their implications for the Church’s preaching, common life, stance in politics and culture, and eschatological expectations. He has also published on Schleiermacher, Barth, and American ecclesiology, and he contributed to the forthcoming Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary.

Van Driel is married to the Rev. Kimberly Miller van Driel, a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. They have one son.
