Denomination: Baptist

Specific Field: Systematic and Philosophical Theology

Biography: Izak, a Native American raised in a Mexican-Hispanic culture that cherished and emphasized the human connection with the Divine, grew up experiencing the phenomenon of “Scripture” as a constant event amongst family and friends. After encountering and suffering far more limiting ideas of how God “speaks” to humans, Izak seeks to develop new conceptions of Christian scripturality and revelation within the field of constructive theology, keeping in close conversation with classic theologies, theologies of liberation, philosophy, biblical studies, history, and comparative religious scripturality (specifically, Buddhist and Hindu), that honor and empower a global and longstanding truth of the Divine that occurs every single day: God can speak to all of us through everything.”
