The following is his description of his research to date:
In both teaching and research I am committed to relating theological insights to the dilemmas and issues of modern life. My work thereby cuts across disciplinary boundaries and draws on political theory and philosophy as well as Christian theological traditions. I am the author of Theology, Ideology and Liberation (Cambridge University Press, 1994), A Political Theology of Nature (Cambridge University Press, 2003), Anti-human Theology: Nature, Technology and the Postnatural (SCM Press, 2010), and numerous articles. I am co-editor of the Blackwell Companion to Political Theology (2004), Future Perfect (2006), Re-moralising Britain? (2009), Nature, Space and the Sacred (2009), At home in the Future (2016) and Systematic Theology and Climate Change (2014). Furthermore, I am a member of the Center of Theological Inquiry (Princeton, USA) and an Anglican priest in the Diocese of Manchester.
