Brian Bantum

Brian Bantum is Associate Professor of Theology at Seattle Pacific University. A black bi-racial son of Wendy and Joseph, husband of Gail Song, a Korean American pastor, and father to three mixed race children, Brian’s theological questions emerged from a life knit from many communities, their struggles, their transgressions, and their practices of resistance. Writing, teaching, and speaking on theology, embodiment, and Christian life, Bantum asks students to cultivate disruptive spaces of in-between in their lives and calling. His books include Redeeming Mulatto: A Theology of Race and Christian Hybridity and The Death of Race: Building a New Christianity in a Racial World.
