Announcing the 2019 Richard & Louise Goodwin Prizes for Excellence in Theological Writing

The board of directors of Theological Horizons is pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Goodwin Prizes.  Awards are given to graduate students whose essays demonstrate creative theological thinking, excellence in scholarship, faithful witness to the Christian tradition, and engagement with the community of faith.

The $2,500 prize has been awarded to Jonathan M. Platter (University of Cambridge) for the essay, "Divine Simplicity and Scripture:  A Theological Reading of Exodus 3:14." 

The $1,000 prize has been awarded to Hina Khalid (University of Cambridge) for the essay, “At the bedside: a theological consideration of the role of silence and touch in the accompaniment of the dying.”

Drew Masterson (Duke Divinity School) has been awarded $500 for the essay, “Challenging Our Limits or Sacrificing Our Relationality?  Karl Barth, Colin Gunton, and Transhumanist Anthropologies.”

We are deeply encouraged to see young scholars of such promise and commitment and we offer our warm congratulations to all who participated in this year’s competition.
