Personal profile

Personal information

Prof. van den Brink holds the University Research Chair for Theology & Science at the Faculty of Theology. His research is mainly focused on the interface of Christian faith and the natural sciences, but Van den Brink also participates in wider debates on the relationship between science and religion. His current research is concentrated on two projects: (1) the way in which evolutionary theory coheres with classical theistic beliefs; (2) the nature and future of theology as an academic discipline. This first project issues in his Reformed Theology and Evolutionary Theory (Grand Rapids 2020), a precursor of which appeared in Dutch in 2017. The output of the second project is mainly in the form of scholarly papers and contributions to conferences.

Next to this, Prof. Van den Brink is Head of the Department of Beliefs & Practices, spending ca. half of his time doing administration.
