The primary focus of Dr. John Hoffmeyer’s theological work is the Trinity. He is especially interested in ways that reflection on the Trinity can aid in making the life and witness of the church more realistic: that is, more in accordance with reality as defined by the gospel. He has published on the German thinkers G.W.F. Hegel and Friedrich Schleiermacher, and is currently working on a book on trinitarian theology and consumerism.
Dr. Hoffmeyer has worked, taught, and published in the area of theological education with youth. He regularly leads educational travel seminars to El Salvador.
