Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology, Knox Theological Seminary

B.A., M.A., Ph.D., Wheaton College,

Dr. Allen teaches systematic (or dogmatic) theology and theological ethics as a way to train students to delight in the study of God’s mighty deeds (Psalm 111:2). He hopes that integrated study of Bible and theology will help students prepare for faithful ministry in the local church by considering our worship and witness in light of God’s Word. He is especially interested in how Christian doctrine relates to other theological disciplines: biblical theology, historical theology, and moral theology.

He grew up in both the South and in South Florida as the son of a Presbyterian pastor. He is presently a candidate for ordination as a teaching elder in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. In addition to his work in the seminary, he enjoys serving in local churches: teaching classes for children and adults, preaching, and working in the nursery. Prior to joining the faculty at Knox, he taught undergraduate and graduate students at Wheaton College for two years. He has also been active in the American Academy of Religion, the Evangelical Theological Society, and the Society of Biblical Literature.

When not busy at the seminary, he enjoys time with his wife Emily, NBA basketball, running, reading, the beach, and sweet tea.

Publications include: The Christ’s Faith: A Dogmatic Account ; Reformed Theology ; Theological Commentary (ed. Michael Allen and Geoff Ziegler); and publications in journals such as Journal of Theological Interpretation, Modern Reformation, Westminster Theological Journal and International Journal of Systematic Theology.
