Hometown: Lubbock, Texas
Education: BA Biblical Texts and Preaching (minor in English), Lubbock Christian University

Academic Interests
Coming from a background in ministry preparation, Austin is interested in non-biblical narrative as intrinsically valuable to the Christian life, and believes it carries as much potential for virtue formation as typical Christian ministry.

Specific research interests include exploring theodicy within literature and film, perspective criticism, virtue ethics, the mystical representation of God in early African American literature, apophatic theology, and the anti-industrialist language of J.R.R. Tolkien and other fantasy writers.

Other Interests
Austin enjoys reading both past and current Sci-Fi and Fantasy novels, listening to every NPR Tiny Desk concert, playing various instruments, watching movies with his wife, and trying new foods. You can find him looking overwhelmed in the Tesco checkout line.
