Jonathan Anderson’s scholarship explores the interrelations of art history, theology, and religious studies, with a particular focus on modern and contemporary art. He is the coauthor (with William Dyrness) of the book Modern Art and the Life of a Culture: The Religious Impulses of Modernism (IVP Academic, 2016) and the author of many articles and book chapters, including “The (In)visibility of Theology in Contemporary Art Criticism” (Eerdmans, 2014) and “Modern Art” in The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Religion (Oxford University Press, 2021).

Prior to his appointment at Regent College, Anderson completed a PhD at King’s College London (London, England) and then taught for three years at Duke Divinity School (Durham, NC) as the Postdoctoral Associate of Theology and the Visual Arts. Prior to this, he was trained as an artist and art critic, earning an MFA from California State University Long Beach and teaching for eleven years as an Associate Professor of Art at Biola University (La Mirada, CA).
