He studies historical theology and is the author of Sin, Grace and Free Will: A Historical Survey of Christian Thought - Volume 1: The Apostolic Fathers to Augustine ( James Clarke & Co., 2017). In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, two daughters and his students past and present.
"There are other books on sin, grace and free will, written from a systematic or historical perspective, but this book is unique. It focusses on the primary texts and contains substantial extracts from them. So this 'historical survey' can indeed justly be called a 'reader'. The extensive extracts enable readers to experience the writings of the early church fathers for themselves and, where they wish, go back to these writings to read more. A very useful work that is heartily recommended." Tony Lane, Professor of Historical Theology, London School of Theology well-argued, clear and engaging. an ideal resource for teaching and writing on medieval and reformation theology, it is highly recommended Nathan Hood.
