Associate Professor of Theology
Andy Draycott regularly teaches an undergraduate theology course focusing on how the Holy Spirit constitutes the salvation of Christians as a Church awaiting Jesus's return. He is deeply invested in the interdisciplinary integration of faith and learning, always seeking a diversity of voices, texts, and material expressions of evangelical theology to encourage students in their learning. He has worked or taught on issues as varied as evangelical social action in Brazil, theology of immigration, church and disability, and the theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. His present research focuses on the theological, spiritual, literary and cultural legacy of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. He is at various stages of research looking at contemporary American reception of The Pilgrim's Progress on the internet, in bible studies, in graphic novels, in missionary outreach, in relation to gender, and race, in popular music, in online sermons, and in homeschooling curricula.
