Mark Husbands holds the Leonard and Marjorie Maas Chair in Reformed Theology at Hope College. He holds a Ph.D. in Theology from the University of St. Michael's College, (University of Toronto) where he wrote on Barth’s Ethics of Prayer, Ontology and Moral Action under the direction of Dr. John Webster (Aberdeen). While primarily concerned with the moral theology of Karl Barth, professor Husbands’ scholarly work demonstrates a genuine commitment to the integration of faith and learning. This is on display in publications and scholarly presentations on topics as diverse as the doctrine of the Trinity, Scripture, theological anthropology, political theology, women in ministry, world Christianity, HIV/AIDS, justice and the environment. Theological and cultural interests have led him to address the work of Gregory of Nyssa, Calvin, P.T. Forsyth, Bonhoeffoer, T.F. Torrance, Martin Luther King Jr., Archbishop David Gitari, Miroslav Volf, Karl Barth, and theological significance of Mozart, Verdi, and U2.
