Kirk MacGregor

Kirk MacGregor, assistant professor and chair of Philosophy and Religion at McPherson College, recently published a textbook titled “Contemporary Theology: An Introduction – Classical, Evangelical, Philosophical, and Global Perspectives.” Professor MacGregor also created a 38-lecture video series to accompany the text.

“Contemporary Theology,” published by Zondervan, provides a chronological survey of the major thinkers and schools of thought in modern theology. The text is described as an accessible, wide-ranging overview of the contemporary theological scene. It will be used this spring in Professor MacGregor’s Christian Traditions class.

Professor MacGregor is the author of four other books and of over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles appearing in prominent forums such as the Harvard Theological Review, among others. He joined the McPherson College faculty in 2016 and was recognized as Professor of the Year in 2018 and received the Non-Tenured Faculty Teaching Award in 2017. Before coming to McPherson College, he also taught at James Madison University, Radford University, the University of Northern Iowa, Western Illinois University, and Quincy University.
