Longer introduction

Hi, I’m Will Sipling. I work in ministry at Word on Fire as the Director of Communications. I’m currently an independent (institutionally unaffiliated) scholar who researches and writes about mythology, mysticism, and social theory.

My academic work covers thinkers such as Adorno, Horkheimer, Charles Taylor, Newman, Walter Benjamin, and Edward Bernays. I explore topics like the nouvelle théologie, catechetical biblical studies, Anglicanism, Western Esotericism, sexuality, and pastoral psychology.

I earned an MA in Catholic Studies from the University of St. Thomas (MN), and was a Student Fellow of the Department of Catholic Studies and the Thomas J. Murphy Center for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy. Before this, I served as Assistant Director of Digital Content and Marketing at Dallas Theological Seminary, where I earned a master’s degree in biblical and theological studies.
