Biography

Robert W. Heimburger is Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theological Ethics at the University of Aberdeen.

He is a theologian of ethics and politics. His book, God and the Illegal Alien: United States Immigration Law and a Theology of Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2018), examines the history behind how so many could fall under the category of the “illegal alien” under U.S. law, and it responds by reflecting on what it is to be a nation, to govern territory, and to do justice.

His research with the Faith and Displacement Project at the Seminario Bíblico de Colombia (FUSBC) includes, with Christopher M. Hays and Guillermo Mejía-Castillo, ‘Forgiveness and Politics: Reading Matthew 18:21-35 with Survivors of Armed Conflict in Colombia’, HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies (2019).

He is Chair of the Theological Advisory Group for IFES and outgoing Editor of IFES Word & World, which seeks theological reflection on the world that students live in.

Formerly, he was Associate Chaplain with the Oxford Pastorate, coordinating Developing a Christian Mind at Oxford and Christians in Academia.
