L. Arik Greenberg (B.A., Wesleyan U.; M.A.T.S., Claremont School of Theology; M.A., Ph.D., Claremont Graduate University) is the newly appointed Clinical Assistant Professor in Interreligious Dialogue. His first book was entitled, “My Share of God’s Reward” Exploring the Roles and Formulations of the Afterlife in Early Christian Martyrdom (Peter Lang, 2009). Dr. Greenberg employs his primary training as a scholar of New Testament and Christian Origins as a jumping off point for his academic and social activist work in interfaith, with a particular focus on the diversity of belief within early Christianity as a model for modern ecumenical and interreligious dialogue. An ardent advocate of religious tolerance and interfaith dialogue, he is founder of the Institute for Religious Tolerance, Peace and Justice. Dr. Greenberg has served the Theological Studies faculty of LMU since 2003.
