Wesley Hill is an Episcopal priest. He has spoken and lectured at numerous Christian colleges and seminaries in the U.S. and internationally. In 2018 he was a member of the St. Augustine Seminar held at Lambeth Palace to prepare resources for the upcoming Lambeth Conference of the Anglican Communion in 2022. He is the author of Washed and Waiting: Reflections on Christian Faithfulness and Homosexuality (Zondervan, second edition 2016), Paul and the Trinity: Persons, Relations, and the Pauline Letters (Eerdmans, 2015), Spiritual Friendship: Finding Love in the Church as a Celibate Gay Christian (Brazos, 2015), and The Lord’s Prayer: A Guide to Praying to Our Father (Lexham, 2019). A contributing editor for Comment magazine, he writes regularly for Christianity Today, The Living Church, and other publications.
“The earliest Christians summarized the gospel by saying: ‘Jesus is Lord.’ That is, in the power of the Spirit of Jesus, they called on him as the one who had been raised to new life after his shameful death, through the glory of the one he knew as ‘Father,’ and who was now reigning at the Father’s right hand with mercy and hope for sinners. It is my joy, privilege, and high calling to help students read the earliest Christian writings — the New Testament — in light of that good news: to wrestle with these writings, to listen to them carefully and patiently, and ultimately to proclaim their message afresh in the expectation that the risen Jesus will continue to address the church and the world through them.”
