Adam Hearlson

Adam Hearlson is scholar, writer, and minister living in Pennsylvania. Originally from California, Adam received his B.A. from Vanguard University and his M.Div. and Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary. His current book The Holy No: Worship as a Subversive Act, published by Eerdmans, describes the ways worship has been used within Christian communities as an act of holy subversion. Because of this research, he has become fascinated with non-conformist puritans, slave spirituals, ancient graffiti, and doctrines of inculturation.  Adam is also a contributing editor at The Christian Century and the co-host of Technicolor Jesus, a podcast about movies, preaching, and ministry. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, Adam has taught at schools up and down the east coast and is currently working on a book about movies and another about the perils of ambition.
