As a practical theologian, Jeffrey Mahan seeks to teach skills of theological reflection which deepen our reflection on God, church, community, and vocation. A concern for what narrative reveals about worldview, the issues communities face, and people’s beliefs and values informs Jeffrey Mahan’s work in field education and in media and cultural studies. Mahan serves as Academic Vice President and Dean of the Faculty. His publications include Religion and Popular Culture in America, Shared Wisdom, A Long Way from Solving that One, and American Television Genres as well as numerous essays.
