Dr. Jeffrey D. Meyers holds a Ph.D. in theology from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and an M.A. in religion with a concentration in peace and justice studies from Earlham School of Religion. His teaching and research interests lie at the intersection of nonviolence theory, Christian theology, and the study of the Christian scriptures. He is currently working on a book, The Nonviolent Apocalypse: Revelation’s Nonviolent Resistance Against Rome, that examines the book of Revelation in the Bible as an example of resistance literature that uses and calls for nonviolent resistance against the injustices of the Roman Empire. In 2016 he published The Way of Peace: A. J. Muste’s Writings for the Church, a collection of works by the twentieth-century peace activist and organizer A. J. Muste.
