• Christopher Stephenson
    Christopher Stephenson, PhD
    Assistant Professor of
    Systematic Theology

    Stephenson joined Lee’s faculty in 2008. He earned his PhD in theology and ethics from Marquette University.

    His areas of interest and academic research include the following: theological method and ecumenism, as well as pneumatology and its intersections among systematic, spiritual, and liturgical theology.

    Stephenson is the author of Types of Pentecostal Theology: Method, System, Spirit (Oxford, 2013). This book is the first critical study of the most prolific and influential academic theologians of pentecostalism, and it provides insight into such fundamental issues as the relationship between theology and philosophy, the dynamic between scripture and tradition, and the similarities and differences between recent pentecostal theology and other currents in contemporary theology. Originating as a PhD dissertation, the book was distinguished by a grant from the Louisville Institute. Stephenson is currently writing a book on the work of Jesus Christ for Eerdmans’s Guides to Theology series and co-editing a volume on pentecostalism and ecumenism for Brill’s Global Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies series. In 2014, Stephenson won Lee University’s Excellence in Scholarship Award.

    Stephenson is the founding editor of Peter Lang’s new Ecumenical Studies series, leader of the Ecumenical Studies interest group of the Society for Pentecostal Studies, and a member of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy. He has also published articles in Journal of Ecumenical Studies, Pneuma, Journal of Pentecostal Theology, Religion Compass, and Istina.

    Stephenson and his wife Lisa have two daughters, Abigail and Bella.
