 PROFILE

Rev Dr Graham Buxton is Director of Postgraduate Development at Tabor Adelaide and Adjunct Professor of Pastoral Ministry at Fuller Seminary in the USA. In 2011 he took up the position of inaugural Director of the Graeme Clark Research Institute, a new initiative that has been established to conduct, facilitate and promote research and development within Tabor Adelaide in the broad context of Christian service to the community. Before entering full‐time ministry, Graham was engaged in marketing management with Shell‐Mex & BP Ltd in London, followed by lecturing appointments in marketing and logistics management at Leeds Polytechnic (1971‐1972) and the
University of Bradford (1973‐1977). He is an ordained Anglican (1983), with extensive experience also in lay pastoral ministry. Prior to emigrating with his family from England to Australia in 1991, he was Vicar of St Pauls, South Harrow. Graham teaches postgraduate level subjects in the School of
Ministry, Theology & Culture at Tabor Adelaide, and his teaching and research interests focus on practical theology, applied trinitarian theology, the science‐theology dialogue, the sacred‐secular divide, and the theology of Jürgen Moltmann. He is the author of Dancing in the Dark: The Privilege
of Participating in the Ministry of Christ (Carlisle UK: Paternoster, 2001), and The Trinity, Creation and Pastoral Ministry (Milton Keynes UK: Paternoster, 2005). His latest book, Celebrating Life: Beyond the Sacred‐Secular Divide, which was published in mid‐2007, reflects his passion to encourage people to enjoy the gift of life by receiving with thanksgiving all that is good in God’s world.
