Cortez Joins Biblical and Theological Studies Faculty at Wheaton College

Dr. Marc A. Cortez recently joined the Wheaton College faculty as Associate Professor of Theology.

Previously, Cortez served as Academic Dean, Th.M. program director and Associate Professor of Theology at Western Seminary.

Cortez is a graduate of Multnomah Bible College, where he earned a B.A. in Systematic Theology. He completed an M.A. and Th.M. from Western Seminary, and earned a doctorate from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

Cortez specializes in the teaching and research of systematic theology. He is the author of Theological Anthropology: A Guide for the Perplexed and Embodied Souls, Ensouled Bodies: An Exercise in Christological Anthropology and its Significance for the Mind/Body Debate, both published by T&T Clark.

His research interests include theological anthropology, the philosophy of the mind and the mind/body relationship, and historical theology.

"I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to serve an institution with such a long tradition of biblical faithfulness, academic excellence, and global impact,” Cortez says. “The faculty and students have been a joy to work with, and I'm looking forward to connecting with Christian scholars from such a diverse range of disciplines. It's a great place to teach theology, mentor students, and see how God is at work in the world.”
