Keith Johnson, Ph.D.

Dr. Keith Johnson

Director of Theological Integration

Dr. Johnson teaches courses in systematic theology with the goal of helping students connect the best insights of the Christian tradition to their daily life and work. This goal is reflected in his book Theology as Discipleship (IVP Academic, 2015), in which he demonstrates how the study of theology can be an act of faithfulness to Christ and service to the church.

Throughout his time at Wheaton, Keith has been involved in interdisciplinary discussions to help strengthen the relationship between theology, the liberal arts, and the sciences. As an ordained minister, he often speaks and teaches in local churches.

Dr. Johnson currently is writing a theology of innovation that will help Christians in the marketplace relate the disruption of innovation to the grace of God. In addition to this research, his academic work focuses on modern theology with an emphasis on contemporary discussion related to the doctrines of the Trinity, Christology, and salvation. His recent publications include The Essential Karl Barth (Baker Academic, 2019) and the co-edited volume Balm in Gilead: A Theological Dialogue with Marilynne Robinson (IVP Academic, 2019).
