Padgett is a Christian theologian with a strong interest in theology and science. Raised in Huntington Beach, California, he studied social science and entered the United Methodist clergy after studies at Drew University (M. Div.). After several years of full time pastoral work, he attended Oxford University (D. Phil.), working on philosophy of science and philosophy of religion with Richard Swinburne. He taught philosophy of science and theology at Azusa Pacific University for ten years, and has been a full professor of systematic theology at Luther Seminary in Minnesota since 2001. He continues to teach, lecture and write on areas where theology and philosophy intersect with science.
