Nicholas Norman-Krause completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Religion at Baylor University. His dissertation, Political Theology and the Conflicts of Democracy, explored the relationship between Christian theology and democratic political theory, developing a theological account of conflict, disagreement, and moral pluralism in contemporary democratic politics. Nicholas’s research is primarily in moral theology, social ethics, and religion and politics. He has published in the Anglican Theological ReviewJournal of Moral Theology, and International Journal of Christianity and Education, and is a contributor to The T&T Clark Handbook of Political Theology. Currently, he is working on a new project that considers the place of class in Christian social theology, its relationship to labor, race, and gender, and the religious meaning of social conflict in struggles for economic justice.
