Frances P. Owen Distinguished Professor of Systematic Theology, Simpson University
Craig J. Slane is a recognized international scholar, having lectured widely and written extensively on the life and legacy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He currently serves on the board of directors for the International Bonhoeffer Society. Previously he served seven years as the society's official bibliographer. His book Bonhoeffer as Martyr: Social Responsibility and Modern Christian Commitment (Brazos, 2004) has been received with enthusiasm as a superior treatment of the controversy surrounding Bonhoeffer's death.
Dr. Slane's most recent research interests focus on the project of the Christian university in a postmodern situation. He also cultivates his love for baseball and computer programming through an original simulation baseball game (Nostalgia Simulation Baseball) that he operates on the Web. Dr. Slane was in residence at Biola University's Center for Christian Thought during the 2012 Spring Semester.
