Jesse Smith is a doctoral candidate in the Faculty of Theology at Saint Paul University. His research focuses on the human soul and its treatment in postmodern theology and in the science/religion debate. Confessionally Baptist, his work interacts primarily with Anglo-Catholic traditions. Originally from the Maritimes, Jesse is now happy to call Ottawa home with his wife and son. (Source)
