About Me

Neal DeRoo has served in many roles at the intersection of philosophy and religion, most recently as the Canada Research Chair in Phenomenology and Philosophy of Religion at The King's University. He was the Director of the Andreas Center for Reformed Scholarship and Service from 2014-2016, the founding editor of In All Things, and has served on numerous boards and advisory committees, including the Christian Scholar's Review, the Society for the Phenomenology of Religious Experience, the Society for Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture, the Canadian Journal for Scholarship and the Christian Faith, and the Board of Trustees for the Institute for Christian Studies from 2014-2017. He has published two authored books, 4 edited books (with 2 more on the way), and numerous articles and book chapters on phenomenology, the philosophy of religion, politics, and more. He speaks and lectures worldwide to academic, popular and professional audiences, including doing professional development work with Christian day school teachers. His current work develops the phenomenological notion of spirituality, which functions as a foundational element of our experiencing and influences everything from how we intuit the world to questions of racialization and genderization to how we worship God.
