Leftow, Brian
   A Yale-educated medievalist, metaphysician and philosopher of religion, Leftow is the current (and first non-British) holder of the Nolloth Chair in the Philosophy of the Christian Religion, in succession to Richard Swinburne. He has written in defence of classical theism, particularly the doctrine that God is outside time, and has also developed a trenchant critique of social theories of the Trinity. His spiritual autobiography is included in Morris 1994.
