Paul Martens is Associate Professor of Ethics in the Department of Religion and the Director of Interdisciplinary Programs in the College of Arts and Sciences at Baylor University. He earned his PhD in Moral Theology/Christian Ethics from the University of Notre Dame in 2005. His early writings are primarily concerned with the fraught relationship between Christian ethics and philosophical accounts of morality. Increasingly, he has been working on issues in global ethics: nonviolence, environmental ethics, interreligious cooperation, and human dignity. At present, he is exploring the role that natural law (or something analogous) might play in bridging these philosophical and practical concerns. He co-edits two book series—Kierkegaard as Christian Thinker (Eerdmans) and the T&T Clark Studies in Anabaptist Theology and Ethics. His publications include Reading Kierkegaard I: Fear and Trembling (2017), and several co-edited volumes including Kierkegaard and Christian Faith (2016), Recovering From the Anabaptist Vision: New Essays in Anabaptist Identity and Theological Method (ed) (2020), and The Ethics of Grace: Engaging Gerald McKenny (2023). His articles have appeared in Modern Theology, Studies in Christian Ethics, Journal of Scriptural Reasoning, Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, International Journal of Systematic Theology, Mennonite Quarterly Review, and others.
