Dr. Jeffrey Meyers

Dr. Jeffrey D. Meyers is a nonviolence theorist and theologian whose work brings theology and biblical studies into conversation with scholarship on nonviolence. He has taught for the Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies program at DePaul since 2018, specializing in courses cross-listed with religious studies. He 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.

Dr. Meyers' publications include The Way of Peace: A. J. Muste's Writings for the Church, a collection of theological works by the peacemaker, organizer, and pastor A. J. Muste (1885–1967), and The Nonviolent Apocalypse: Revelation's Nonviolent Resistance Against Rome, which 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.
