About the Presenter:

Professor Tom specialises in the field of historical theology, which is neither the history of theology, nor church history, nor intellectual history, nor the history of ideas – though it shares methods and interests with all these disciplines. Rather it is the endeavour to do theology using the experience of the historical variety of Christian believing/living over the centuries as a key to what is important in Christians’ today making sense of their faith. It is characterized by the empiricism of historical research, but while it is retrospective in its searching, it is focused in the situation of the present. So, in a sense, the present is the prologue to the past.
