Luke Bretherton


Luke Bretherton is Associate Professor in Theological Ethics and a Senior Fellow of the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University. Before joining Duke he was Reader in Theology & Politics and Convener of the Faith & Public Policy Forum at King's College London. His recent work has focused on such things as faith-based organizations, the church's involvement in social welfare provision, the treatment of refugees, and fair trade. That work is drawn together in Christianity & Contemporary Politics: The Conditions and Possibilities of Faithful Witness (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010), the winner of the 2013 Michael Ramsey Prize for Theological Writing. When living in the United Kingdom, he was actively involved in politics as part of London Citizens, a broad-based community organization. He currently enjoys sampling the delights of what he has learnt to call "craft" beers from the South East of America and is learning not to look confused by the rules of basketball.
