David Cramer

David C. Cramer is a doctoral student and teaching assistant in the Department of Religion at Baylor University. Having grown up in an evangelical context, his first serious encounter with religious pluralism was through reading and subsequently writing his master’s thesis on the religious epistemology of John Hick while at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he received his M.Div. and M.A. in philosophy of religion. For three years David taught in the Religion and Philosophy Department at Bethel College, Indiana, before beginning his studies at Baylor. He has published articles on religious pluralism, nonviolence, gender equality, and the theological ethics of John Howard Yoder in various academic journals and is co-editor of the recent volume, The Activist Impulse: Essays on the Intersection of Evangelicalism and Anabaptism (Pickwick, 2012). David, his wife Andrea, and their two young children are actively involved in Hope Fellowship, a Mennonite faith community in Waco, Texas.
