MA, Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary
Under the supervision of Professor Judith Wolfe, Lance’s dissertation seeks to formulate a metaphysic of myth grounded in the thought of Martin Heidegger, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and J.R.R. Tolkien. More broadly, his academic interests include Trinitarian theology, Christian mysticism, and questions relating to the analogy of being.
Both Lance and his wife Rachel, who has PhD in Theology from Baylor University (Waco, Texas), are on the faculty of Yellowstone Theological Institute (Bozeman, Montana). They have two pitbull rescues from their time in Texas, lovingly named Eowyn and Rosie. An avid cyclist and outdoorsman, Lance has a special fondness for the wilderness of the mountains and feels far more comfortable there than he does in urban landscapes.
