Leanne Van Dyk combines her love of teaching with a passion for the work of theology and a conviction that the teaching theologian must always keep in mind the present needs of the church. Her years in San Francisco, where she served on the faculty of the San Francisco Theological Seminary, sharpened her focus on the issues of cultural diversity that face the church today. She brings to Western an excitement for the rich resources within the Reformed tradition for speaking theologically across cultural and religious boundaries.

Dr. Van Dyk has also served as a member of the Core Doctoral Faculty at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California; as a member-in-residence at the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey; as a member of the Wabash Center’s Consultation on Theological Education; and on the Catechism Committee of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). She is the author of The Desire of Divine Love: The Atonement Theology of John McLeod Campbell, Believing in Jesus Christ, and A More Profound Alleluia; Theology and Worship in Harmony. She serves on the editorial boards of Perspectives, the Journal of Reformed Thought and the Scottish Journal of Theology.
