I came to the University of Manchester in 2005 from the University of Gloucestershire, where I had been teaching since 1989. Before that, I completed a PhD at the University of Bristol: An Epistemology for Liberation: Marxist Questions to liberation Theology (1990).

In both teaching and research I am committed to relating theological insights to the dilemmas and issues of modern life. My work thereby cuts across disciplinary boundaries and draws on political theory and philosophy as well as Christian theological traditions. I am the author of Theology, Ideology and Liberation (Cambridge University Press, 1994), A Political Theology of Nature (Cambridge University Press, 2003), Anti-human Theology: Nature, Technology and the Postnatural (SCM, 2010) and numerous articles, and am co-editor of the Blackwell Companion to Political Theology (2004). Furthermore, I am a member of the Center of Theological Inquiry (Princeton, USA).
