About Christine Wood, PhD

Christine E. Wood received her PhD in theology from Marquette University, Milwaukee, and her MA in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. Prior to that Christine studied the philosophy of St Thomas Aquinas in Australia for a number of years. Since completing her doctorate, Christine has lectured in systematic and biblical theology, and ethics, at John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, and is now the founder of the Verbum Domini Biblical & Catechetical Institute at the Archdiocese of Hobart, Australia. Christine’s teaching focus has mainly been in Christology, Fundamental Theology, Ecclesiology, Catholic Social Teaching, Moral Theology, and Scripture. Christine has been an instructor at CDU since 2014. Her research interests range from the intersection of faith and reason, nature and grace, the theology of revelation, the interrelation of Christology and Ecclesiology, and the liturgical actualization of the salvific events of the mystery of Jesus Christ. Christine is currently working towards the publication of doctoral dissertation entitled, “The Metaphysics and Intellective Psychology in the Natural Desire for Seeing God: Henri de Lubac and Neo-Scholasticism.” She hails from Australia where she is the President of the St. John Centre for Biblical Studies.
