Peter Bouteneff teaches courses in theology, patristics, and spirituality at the seminary. After taking a degree in music in 1983, he lived and worked in Japan, and traveled widely in Asia and Greece. He has an M.Div. from the seminary and a doctorate from Oxford University, where he studied under Bishop Kallistos Ware. He has worked for many years in theological dialogue, notably as Executive Secretary for Faith and Order at the World Council of Churches, and has written extensively on Orthodox relations with other churches and with the WCC. Aside from teaching at the seminary, he contributes to the exploration of information technology and its applications in pedagogy. His theological interests include Christ, the Church, and the human person, but as a great fan of music and cinema, he is also committed to exploring the connections between theology and popular culture, and regularly offers a course on religious themes in film. He conceived of and edits the popular “Foundations” series for SVS Press, to which he has contributed a volume on “dogma and truth” called Sweeter than Honey. His most recent book is Beginnings: Ancient Christian Readings of the Biblical Creation Narratives, published by Baker Academic Press.
