More About the Author

I'm a married lay Catholic theologian with two beautiful daughters and a son, all from China. I teach in the Capstone program at Boston College, where I also serve in the Office of University Mission and Ministry, editing a journal advancing the mission of Catholic higher education.

My Ph.D. (Duquesne University, 1998) is in Catholic Systematic Theology, and my dissertation focused on the symbolization of sex in Catholic marriage. I taught for eight years at Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, Pennsylvania, four of those as Chair of the Department of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Theology. My first role at Boston College was as Director of the Church in the 21st Century Center, before moving into my current role.

My interest is in drawing deeply from the tradition of Christian spirituality to invite people into greater awareness of God, greater love for the Church, greater service to the world. My scholarship draws from the Western literary tradition, Ignatian spirituality, and contemporary Christian theology. More recently, I have been interested in Chinese Catholicism and its lessons for Westerners. My teaching is about the "great conversation" across the centuries in the West, but with an eye to how to broaden that conversation with new partners from the East.

I believe in prayer, not only because of its obvious benefits (greater peace, self awareness, physical health) but also because in stillness we become attuned to God's voice. I have been moved by the saints of the Christian tradition (and even other traditions), and seek to grow in love through prayer. I mean this in a very pedestrian way: I just want to be a better husband and father, and maybe even a better citizen. I am persuaded that the examples of the saints help me to be a little more like Jesus.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tim Muldoon's, Seeds of Hope, is a valuable resource for those seeking to work with today's young adults in any context, but particularly in spiritual ministry. His references are current and startling and help shape an attitude that will benefit your strategies as well as your purpose. In a field flooded with similar resources, this book posseses a compassionate, yet forceful voice for impetus in ministry and is worth the time taken to read it. Highly recommended.
