After growing up in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, Jeff Boldt wandered through the spiritual ruins of North American denominationalism looking for the “True Church.” Instead he found the Anglican Communion, where he has begun to learn the virtue of staying put. With the help of friends and mentors he was drawn to Wycliffe College in Toronto, where he earned a master of theological studies and is now a doctoral student. He also has a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Waterloo.
His interests lay in Patristics, early modern theology, figural exegesis of the Bible, ecclesiology, and Platonism. When he isn’t reading books, he works as an animator on shows such as My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Martha Speaks. He compensates for this overly sedentary lifestyle through biking and Cross Fit, but it is a losing battle. Jeff recently published a chapter on the Anglican theologian Lionel S. Thornton in Benjamin Guyer’s compendium, Pro Communione: Theological Essays on the Anglican Covenant.
