Han-luen Kantzer Komline – Augustine and Turning Points in Christian History

Episode: In this episode, co-host Amy Hughes talks with Han-Iuen Kantzer Komline about all things Augustine! We covered it all! Just kidding, we barely scratched the surface of everyone’s favorite bishop from Hippo. We discuss her work on Augustine and the will, as well as her latest project, co-authoring the fourth edition of Turning Points with Mark Noll and David Komline.

Guest: Han-luen Kantzer Komline is Associate Professor of Church History and Theology at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, USA and the author of Augustine on the Will: A Theological Account (Oxford University Press, 2020), which received the Lautenschläger Award for Theological Promise in 2020.  Her research focuses on early Christian theology.  Many of her publications concern topics in Augustine or his relationship to other thinkers, ranging from Ambrose and Cyprian to Karl Barth and Marilynne Robinson.  She has also published on more recent figures such as John Calvin, Jürgen Moltmann, and Erich Przywara, and serves as co-editor of the International Journal of Systematic Theology.  Kantzer Komline’s research has been supported by fellowships from the Fulbright Commission, the Louisville Institute, the Augustinian Institute at Villanova, and the Humboldt Foundation. Her current book project, The Idea of the New in Early Christian Thought, analyzes how Christians of late antiquity conceptualized and defended the innovative character of the Christian faith.

Kantzer Komline serves as co-editor of the International Journal of Systematic Theology, on the steering committee of the Development of Early Christian Theology section for the Society of Biblical Literature, and as an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Reformed Church in America.  She enjoys writing for both scholarly and popular venues, from Studia Patristica to Christianity Today, and is the co-author, with Mark Noll and David Komline, of Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity (4th edition, Baker Academic, 2022).
