Ante Jeroncic’s scholarship and teaching focus on the intersection of constructive theology and culture, especially as it relates to contemporary ethical and philosophical issues. He also has strong interests in questions concerning the nature of divine providence, the relationship of ethics and aesthetics, the problem of religion and violence, and discussions about human identity and agency in the context of postmodernity. He recently published an article with the Heythrop Journal titled “Weak Self-Integration: Jürgen Moltmann’s Anthropology and the Postmodern Self,” and currently works on a book project focusing on the idea of apocalyptic consciousness as the organizing motif for an Adventist theology of existence.
Professor Jeroncic strongly believes that the depth and relevance of the Adventist faith needs to be communicated in fresh and creative ways both within the Church and the culture at large. To that end, he frequently gives lectures and seminars focusing on themes such as Adventist identity, discipleship in the modern world, the character of God and human suffering, and the Sermon on the Mount. He is married to Debbie to whom he feels indebted beyond what words can express.
In 2012, he received the Spiritual Life Award from Andrews University.
