Joel Shuman

Joel Shuman has been with the EP from the beginning, wearing a variety of hats. Currently, in addition to his work with the board, he is co-editor (with Kelly Johnson) of the EP pamphlet series. Those who attended the gathering in summer 2006 will remember his wonderful account of Dante.

Joel is currently an Associate Professor and Chair in the Department of Theology at King’s College, in Wilkes-Barre, PA, where he also directs their Center for Ethics and Public Life. In his writing, Joel focuses on questions in medicine as well as Wendell Berry — frequently even bringing them together.

His books include To Live is to Worship: Bioethics and the Body of Christ (CMU, 2007), Reclaiming the Body (Brazos, 2006), co-authored with EPer Brian Volck; Heal Thyself (Oxford, 2002) co-authored with EPer Keith Meador; and The Body of Compassion (Wipf and Stock, 2003).
