Timothy J. Furry earned his PhD from the University of Dayton. He is Instructor of Religion and Philosophy and Chaplain at Cranbrook Kingswood Upper School in Bloomfield Hills, MI. While his intellectual interests range widely, his current and primary research aims at retrieving ancient Christian practices of reading Scripture figuratively and allegorically in such a way that is intelligible and persuasive in our contemporary setting. He works across the disciplines of biblical studies, systematic theology, historical theology, and philosophy of history. In addition to past articles, chapters, and books, he has two forthcoming books under contract with Cascade, both centering around Christian figural reading.
