About Kyle Strobel
Kyle is a teacher, writer and preacher. He is the assistant professor of Spiritual Theology and Formation at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, and helped start Metamorpha Ministries. Kyle and his wife have lived in Scotland, Connecticut, Colorado and Arizona before settling down in Southern California, and they have two young children. As a part of his vocation, Kyle believes that he is called to do popular teaching and writing as well as academic. He frequently speaks at churches and conferences, and has written three books: Beloved Dust: Drawing Close to God by Discovering the Truth About Yourself (co-authored with Jamin Goggin), Formed for the Glory of God: Learning from the Spiritual Practices of Jonathan Edwards, and Metamorpha: Jesus as a Way of Life. Kyle sees his role as helping people to faithfully witness to the Lord, and therefore he writes and speaks on the Christian life in way that seeks to be biblically rich, theologically astute and attentive to the historical realities of the faith. Academically, Kyle regularly teaches courses on theology and evangelical spirituality for seminary students, and lectures and writes broadly in these areas. Kyle is an expert on the theology of Jonathan Edwards, having writing the book Jonathan Edwards’s Theology: A Reinterpretation, and having published articles on Edwards’s understanding of beauty, justification by faith, the beatific vision and salvation broadly. Kyle also edits academic books, having edited Sanctified by Grace: A Theology of the Christian Life (co-edited with Kent Eilers), Reading Spiritual Classics: A Guide for Evangelicals (co-edited with Jamin Goggin) and Charity and Its Fruits: Living in the Light of God’s Love. Kyle is interested in helping to train future pastors who understand their ministry in light of Christ’s, and who are equally capable of deep biblical and theological reflection as well as keen pastoral and spiritual insight. The church needs shepherds to work out the ministry of The Shepherd, and Kyle sees his ministry as both shepherding and training shepherds for this purpose.
