Janice McRandal is Vice Principal as well as teaching and writing in the area of Christian theology. She was a local church minister for 8 years and has spent many years teaching in both theological colleges and in the broader church. Janice’s primary teaching role focuses on Christian doctrine: not only in relation to how doctrine animates life in the Christian community, but also in relation to the varieties of our lived experience. For this reason, her research explores issues of race, gender, and ecology, and her work as a feminist theologian is committed to working for liberated and abundant lives for those within and beyond the church.
More recently, Janice has been thinking about the role of Christian doctrine in popular cultural spaces. Writing about film, art, and sport, she hopes to show the connection between our everyday joys and creativities, and the traditional faith of the church. She is currently working on a new book that looks specifically at theology and sport.
