Dr. Warren Smith, “Redemption & PTSD”

Dr. J. Warren Smith, Associate Professor of Historical Theology at Duke Divinity School, is interested in the history of theology broadly conceived from the apostles to the present, but his primary focus is upon patristic theology.  Dr. Smith’s current project centers on the theological foundation of Ambrose of Milan’s teachings on the life of virtue, and he has written previously on the ascetic theology of Gregory of Nyssa. Dr. Smith is also a United Methodist elder from the North Georgia Annual Conference. He lives in Durham with his wife, Kimberly Doughty who is a school social worker, and their children, Katherine and Thomas.
