Edward Waggoner is Assistant Professor of Theology in the Rt. Rev. Sam B. Hulsey Chair in Episcopal Studies at Brite Divinity School, where he offers courses in constructive, systematic, and liberation theologies. He received his Ph.D. in Theology from Yale University. His article, “Taking Religion Seriously in the U.S. Military: Chaplaincy as a National Strategic Asset,” which appeared in the Journal of the American Academy of Religion in 2014, is the first article on the topic of religion and the U.S. military ever published by that journal. He is the co-editor, with Joerg Rieger, of Religious Experience and New Materialism: Movement Matters (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015). Waggoner’s research interests include: naturalism in the thought of 19th C. theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher; Christian claims about what it means to experience a triune God; and religion and militarization. He is presently writing a book on military chaplaincies.
