Celebrating Theology Faculty from the University of Nottingham: Simon Oliver

simon_oliverDear Friends and Family,

I’ve been at the University of Nottingham for nearly two years now and have gotten to know many members of our faculty fairly well. That being the case, I thought I would take some time to do posts on some of our faculty. These first posts I intend to do will be on faculty I think to be stellar, but relatively unknown (or at least not widely known).

The first member of our faculty I wish to highlight is Dr Simon Oliver, Head of Department for Theology and Religious Studies here at Nottingham. Simon works in systematic and philosophic theology. Simon is also a priest in the Anglican Church, serving as  honorary Canon Theologian at the minster in Southwell and is an associate priest at a local parish. Simon also happens to be one of my supervisors. He is currently working on a book dealing with creation and teleology that meshes well with my own project on deification. You can read more about Simon’s interests here.
