Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Academic Dean
Dr. Swain joined the faculty of Reformed Theological Seminary in 2006. Prior to that, he taught theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois and served on the faculty of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. His motivation for studying and teaching theology is summarized in a quotation from John Duns Scotus: “The blessed who know more, do love more. So, he who is more acquainted with the mighty deeds of God, is more directed to praise and to love God.”
His main research interests concern the doctrine of the Trinity and the theological interpretation of Scripture. Recent publications include: Trinity, Revelation, and Reading: A Theological Introduction to the Bible and its Interpretation (T & T Clark, 2011); with Andreas Köstenberger, Father, Son and Spirit: The Trinity and John’s Gospel, New Studies in Biblical Theology 24 (IVP, 2008); “The Trinity in the Reformers,” in The Oxford Handbook on the Trinity, edited by Gilles Emery and Matthew Levering (Oxford University Press, 2011); and “God’s Lordly Son: Mark 12.35-37 and Trinitarian Christology,” in Theological Commentary, edited by Michael Allen (T & T Clark, 2011). He is in the process of completing God according to the Gospel: Robert Jenson’s Trinitarian Theology for the Strategic Initiatives in Evangelical Theology series, published by IVP Academic. With Michael Allen, he serves as general editor of T & T Clark’s International Theological Commentary.
Dr. Swain is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. He and his wife, Leigh, have four children.
