Christopher A. Haw, PhD


Assistant Professor of Theology/Religious Studies 

Besides having cultivated the arts of carpentry, fathering, and husband-ing, I earned my PhD in Theology and Peace Studies from the University of Notre Dame, my M.A. from Villanova University, and B.A. from Eastern University. While my scholarly interests concern (partly) how human evolution, violence, scapegoating, Christianity, politics, and culture work--or don't--I have also written two books. Jesus for President (2008) was on the creative nonviolence of Christian discipleship and From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart (2012) was on my journey of joining the Catholic Church while living and working for a decade amidst the rust belt apocalypse of Camden, NJ.
