Chris Killacky is Associate Professor of Theology at Acadia University and teaches in the areas of Theology, History of Christianity, New Testament and Christian Ethics. He holds degrees and post-graduate professional qualifications in Physics, Education & Technology, Church Studies and Theology and is professionally registered as an educationalist by the Province of Nova Scotia and in the United Kingdom. In 2002 Her Majesty the Queen awarded him the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for services to education. Dr Killacky lists his primary work as understanding patterns from the past and developing thought and leadership within the increasingly complex world of education and theology. He says that his vision and excitement for opportunities in developing global perspectives in understanding religion has been greatly enhanced by an international career as a development educationalist where he worked in the field of educational leadership. Prior to his academic career as a theologian Dr Killacky worked in the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and the USA where he was Director of Educational Training and Technology for the blue chip company AT&T as well as working for the United Kingdom government. Dr Killacky has spoken at numerous international conferences on theology, education and technology and is currently researching the area of religion in society. He has been the Keynote speaker at the Open University’s e-learning conference and has also given the annual Educational Technology Address at the Technical Institute in Eger, Hungary. Dr. Killacky enjoys spending his spare time with his children, repairing old cars and supporting local initiatives with his children’s school. He has recently published a book in the area of theological thought, has a number of published articles and is now working on two further publications.
