Research areas

Koert?s research sits at the intersection of doctrine and ethics. He is especially interested in how Christian construals of core doctrinal loci shape their understanding of what it means to be human and act humanely. The lines of inquiry he is currently exploring pertain to how justification by faith orients Christian responses to pressing social issues such as white supremacy, the generative nature of theological anthropology for relating church and state, and Reformed resonances in Dietrich Bonhoeffer?s theology of participation.
