Ante Jerončić’s scholarship and teaching focus on the intersection of constructive Adventist theology and culture, especially as they relate to contemporary issues in theological and philosophical anthropology, moral psychology, hermeneutics, power and violence, and the relationship of ethics and epistemology. In so doing, he interacts with and borrows from a variety of theoretical frameworks, including existential phenomenology and practical philosophy in dialogue with biblical theology. Most basically, he is interested in how humans as moral agents inhabit, understand, and relate to the world. His current book project seeks to develop a theology of perception and attention from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Professor Jerončić 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, the character of God, discipleship, and spiritual renewal. He is married to Debbie to whom he feels indebted beyond what words can express.
