Assistant Professor of Theology
Natalie returned to her home state to join the Baylor faculty in fall 2011. She has recently finished a manuscript on beauty and Gregory of Nyssa and is writing a new book on Christology, images, and iconoclasms. Along the way, she is exploring issues in skepticism and anthropology. Her work is richly helped by her husband Matthew and delightfully hindered by her daughters Chora and Edith.
