My research interests are primarily focussed on Holocaust theology, especially in regards to how Jewish mysticism has been used in the various responses to the Shoah. The thesis was published in 2012 by Gorgias Press as Antitheodicy, Atheodicy and Jewish Mysticism in Holocaust Theology. I am also interested in the history of Jewish-Christian relations, the philosophical and theological ‘Problem of Evil’, mysticism and religious experience (particularly the Kabbalah and Shamanism), criticisms of physical-materialism, ‘Death of God’ theology, as well as the general history of philosophy and theology in the Western tradition. I have also been a regular book reviewer for the journal Reviews in Religion and Theology (Wiley-Blackwell) over the last five years.
