Chris Watkin grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in Melbourne with his wife and family. He is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow in the Arts Faculty at Monash University where he leads a research project into the contemporary social contract. In addition to publishing academic articles and books in French philosophy he seeks to bring philosophy and theology into conversation in volumes like Thinking Through Creation: Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique, and theological explorations of Derrida, Foucault and Deleuze in the P&R ‘Great Thinkers’ series. He keeps a blog about theology, philosophy and culture at thinkingthroughthebible.com (Twitter: @thinking_bible), and also maintains a personal website and Twitter account. In November 2022 Chris’s book Biblical Critical Theory will be published by Zondervan Academic. The book sweeps through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, showing how it provides fresh insights into modernity’s toughest problems and deepest longings.
