I am a theologian and church historian within the Catholic tradition, currently employed as Head of Development at the magnificent Durham Cathedral.

Most recently, I published Forgiveness and Restorative Justice (Palgrave Macmillan), together with Myra Blyth and Michael Taylor. We have been considering the epistemic value of Christian theology for understanding and evaluating aspects of restorative justice.
