Seminary of the Southwest

Anthony Baker is a theology professor at Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, as well as the theologian in residence at Saint Julian of Norwich Episcopal Church. About his work on _Shakespeare, Theology, and the Unstaged God_, he says, “I find that literature in general, and especially Shakespeare’s plays, helps us think about the subtle and surprising ways that people of faith can both expect and recall the involvement of God in the world.”
