Frederick A. Niedner is a professor of Theology and former Chair of the Theology Department at Valparaiso University.
His ongoing work in biblical theology focuses primarily on enmity and polarization in the biblical world and the ways in which biblical texts have been employed to perpetuate those same things in our world. His studies also probe biblical themes of reconciliation and forgiveness.
He has served many adjunct roles at Valparaiso University’s Chapel of the Resurrection and contributes regularly to publications that offer text studies and other resources for preaching in the church. His column runs fortnightly on matters religious for the Post-Tribune.
