Hazel Thompson McCord Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary (PTS), George Hunsinger is a leading interpreter of the thought of Karl Barth, the enormously influential twentieth-century theologian whose work constitutes one of the major critical responses to the Enlightenment. Dr. Hunsinger served as founding director of the seminary’s Center for Barth Studies (CBS) for four years and currently serves as president of the Karl Barth Society of North America. An honors graduate of Stanford University, he earned a B.D. from Harvard Divinity School and, after further study at the University of Tübingen, a Ph.D. in theology from Yale University in 1988. He had joined the faculty of New Brunswick Theological Seminary nine years earlier, and, in 1986, he moved on to Bangor Theological Seminary where he was promoted to full professor in 1992. Two years later, he became a member of the Center for Theological Inquiry at Princeton. He was named director of the CBS in 1997 and accepted his present chair in 2001. Dr. Hunsinger has been a visiting professor at Union Theological Seminary, Haverford College, Andover Newton Theological Seminary, and Princeton University and a research professor at the Baptistische Theologische Hochschule in Rüschlikon, Switzerland. Ordained a Presbyterian minister in 1982, he was the principal author of the new Presbyterian catechism adopted in 1998. He is the founder of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT), and, in recognition of his work with that organization, he has received several awards, including the Bishop James K. Matthew Award of the Washington-based Churches’ Center for Theology and Public Policy. He serves on the editorial boards of Ashgate Press’s Studies in Karl Barth series and of the Scottish Journal of Theology. In addition to publishing articles in scholarly journals, he is the co-editor of two books and the editor of three others, most recently Torture Is a Moral Issue: Christians, Jews, Muslims and People of Conscience Speak Out, which was published by Wm. B. Eerdmans in 2008. Dr. Hunsinger is also the author of How to Read Karl Barth: The Shape of His Theology (1991 and, in German translation, 2009), Disruptive Grace: Studies in the Theology of Karl Barth (2000), and The Eucharist and Ecumenism: Let us Keep the Feast, a study published last year by Cambridge University Press that considers the key Eucharistic issues dividing the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Reformed churches and how one day obstacles to Eucharistic sharing might be overcome. His newest book, Theological Commentary on Philippians, will be published by Brazos Press later this year.
