Presentation

I’m employed 50% at FIUC as a førsteamanuensis (assistant professor) in systematic theology. However, I mainly teach Lutheran dogmatics. My teaching and my publication draw heavily on historical theology focusing mainly on Martin Luther and on confessions. I have also done scholarly work on contemporary understandings of divine providence and theodicy. My current work compares aspects in the theologies of Martin Luther and John Wesley; especially law and gospel and the question of prevenient grace.

Besides my 50% employment at the FIUC, I teach and preach 50% in congregations and at Bible courses in the Danish Lutheran Mission (www.dlm.dk).
