He was born in New York City and received degrees from Queens College (B.A.), Concordia Theological Seminary (M.Div.), Princeton Theological Seminary (Th.M.), and Ph.D. from Brown University. Before coming to Georgetown in 1991, he taught at Brown, Connecticut College, and the United States Coast Guard Academy. His research interests focused initially on the thought of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but are now concentrated on the meaning, truth, and justification of moral claims, as well as the ways in which faith-based convictions can play a role in the public square. In addition to serving as Chair of the Main Campus Executive Faculty (2001-2005 and 2009- present), Reynolds has been the Chair of the Department of Theology since 2006, the Chair of the Core Faculty of the Liberal Studies Program (2002-present), and the Director of Doctoral Studies in the Liberal Studies Program. He was also the grateful recipient of the Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence in the Liberal Studies Program, the College Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, The Fund for American Studies Professor of the Year Award, and the national Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs Annual Faculty Award. Dr. Reynolds’s teaching interests lie in the areas of ethical theory and moral issues, the intersections between psychology and religious faith, Enlightenment philosophy and theology, and the thought of Søren Kierkegaard.
