Christian thought and life is Professor Bryant’s primary area of research and teaching. A strong interest in the role of imagination in religion led to the publication of a book, Faith and the Play of Imagination: On the Role of Imagination in Religion. His other research and teaching interests include the interaction of religion and Western culture, the influence of religion on our treatment of the natural environment, and the impact of Christian faith on our understanding of what it means to be human. He is a coordinator for the Environmental Studies major and is a member of the Letters Collegium.
