Alister McGrath Returning to Oxford

That’s the big news in academia this week. Here’s the announcement from Oxford’s Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion:

The Faculty of Theology and Religion has announced with great pleasure that Professor Alister McGrath, currently Professor of Theology, Ministry and Education at King’s College London, and head of its Centre for Theology, Religion, and Culture has accepted the Andreas Idreos Professorship in Science and Religion at Oxford and will take up his new post on 1 April 2014.

McGrath is a distinguished scholar with expertise in a variety of fields whose works have been influential at both scholarly and popular levels. Having spent a significant portion of his academic life in Oxford, this move may not come as a big surprise. McGrath was Professor of Historical Theology at the University of Oxford until 2008 when he took a professorship at King’s College London. Their loss is certainly Oxford’s gain.
