Jason A. Goroncy

Portrait with Emily Kam Kngwarray, Anwerlarr anganenty (Big yam Dreaming) 1995 0701Jason Goroncy (PhD, St Andrews) is Associate Professor of Theology at the University of Divinity. He has published widely in the areas of public theology, theology and the arts, death, and the church. In addition to published articles, book chapters, and poems, he is the author of Hallowed be Thy Name: The Sanctification of All in the Soteriology of P. T. Forsyth, and has edited Descending on Humanity and Intervening in History: Notes from the Pulpit Ministry of P. T. Forsyth, and Tikkun Olam – To Mend the World: A Confluence of Theology and the Arts.

His current writing projects include three monographs – on P. T. Forsyth; on death; and on trauma and resurrection. He is also editing the T&T Clark Handbook of the Doctrine of Creation (Bloomsbury), and coediting (with Rod Pattenden) Imagination in an Age of Crisis: Soundings from the Arts and Theology (Wipf & Stock).

Among Jason’s many affections are cooking (especially Indian and Sri Lankan dishes), music, reading, visual arts, bushwalking, gardening, cycling, whisky, birds, cotton shirts, and loose-leaf teas. He has a strong preference for home-roasted coffee beans, and for second-hand clothing (his favourite pair of pyjamas once belonged to a very long-legged ‘Mr Ron Baker’). His golf game was much improved after reading John Updike’s essays ‘Walking Insomnia’ and ‘Lost Balls’.
