First Year at Gordon-Conwell:
Expertise: History of Christianity, Historical Theology, Political Theology


Dr. Martin teaches courses in history and theology and has research interests in the history of Christianity, the development of Christian theology, and political theology.

Prior to Gordon-Conwell, Dr. Martin taught at Vanderbilt University and the School of Theology at Sewanee: The University of the South. He also has served as a pastor in three congregations. Presently, he serves as the co-planting pastor of West Charlotte Church and has a passion for intercultural ministry.

Dr. Martin received his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University, his M.Div. and M.A. in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; and his B.A. in Political Science and Psychology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Dr. Martin currently is working on two book projects. One, nearly finished, studies the intersection between covenant theology and political legitimation in England in the years leading up to and following its civil wars. The other, in its early stages, explores the practical ethics of Francis Grimké, a prominent early twentieth-century African-American pastor and theologian in Washington, D.C. His previous publications include book reviews and contributions to The Oxford Handbook of Reformed Theology, the Evangelical Dictionary of Theology (Baker), Richard Hooker and Reformed Orthodoxy (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht), and The Oxford Dictionary of Late Antiquity.

He is married to Meg Martin, the Charlotte Area Coordinator for Young Lives, a ministry to teen mothers. They have five children.
