Current Research

I have recently published The Polity of Christ. Studies on Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Chalcedonian Christology and Ethics (Bloomsbury T&T Clark 2020), where I address the challenge in contemporary theology to find a way to maintain both all the shared goods we cherish as political beings, and the call for Christians to be a particular people in the world and bear witness to Christ.

Currently, I am finishing a (Danish) book on how the Christian love shapes and forms our common human responsibility and responsivity. The book explores this question both as a fundamental question and in light of current challenges to Christian ethics. The book is a continuation of my previous work on responsibility as a responsive moral concept.

I welcome any enquiries concerning collaboration with regard to these and related questions.
