He teaches and lectures around the world, but primarily spends his time at the University of Cambridge and at Duke Divinity School, where he is the Thomas A. Langford Research Professor in Theology, and the Founding Director of Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts, which aims to explore how the arts and theology can inform one another. He is an ordained minister of the Church of England, having served a church in West London for a number of years.
He is author of a number of books, including Voicing Creation’s Praise: Towards a Theology of the Arts; Theology, Music and Time, and Resounding Truth: Christian Wisdom in the World of Music, which won the Christianity Today 2008 Book Award in the Theology/Ethics Category. Most recently, he has published Redeeming Transcendence in the Arts: Bearing Witness to the Triune God.
