Matthew L. Becker, Associate Professor of Theology
College of Arts and Sciences - Room 314
I have published a book-length treatment of one of the most important Protestant theologians of the 19th century, Johannes von Hofmann, The Self-Giving God and Salvation History (T&T Clark, 2004). In addition I have written monographs on several important 19th- & 20th-century theologians, have contributed articles on Lutheran theology to The New Westminster Dictionary of Christian Theology (forthcoming) and the Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception (forthcoming), and wrote two chapters for the book, Twentieth-Century Lutheran Theologians (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2013).
My wife, our 14-year-old son, and I enjoy traveling. The photo (below) of my son and me was taken in the summer of 2013 on the Neckar River in Tübingen, Germany. I also enjoy cooking, riding my bicycle, and updating my blog ("Transverse Markings").
