Whitworth Announces New Appointment to the Edward B. Lindaman Endowed Chair

September 12, 2019
Whitworth University is proud to announce Jonathan Moo, Ph.D., associate professor of theology, has been installed as the university’s Edward B. Lindaman Endowed Chair.

The chair, named for Whitworth’s 14th president, was established in 1982 to honor Lindaman’s work as a futurist, business leader and educator.

The position is a rotating chair for senior Whitworth faculty who are engaged in significant regional and national academic initiatives and who contribute to public dialogue concerning important social issues.

Moo joined Whitworth’s faculty in 2010 and has received Whitworth’s Innovative Teaching Award and been named a Most Influential Professor.

He has published numerous articles in his discipline and is the author and co-author of books that address aspects of creation care, including his most recent book, Creation Care: A Biblical Theology of the Natural World.

Moo plans to devote time as Lindaman Chair to his commentary on Revelation and to foster interdisciplinary conversations about ecology, climate change, and balancing social justice with the flourishing of God’s creation.

Endowed chairs allow Whitworth University to honor the accomplishments of particular faculty members and to provide resources toward their future scholarship and continued intellectual growth. These named positions also honor the values of those whose legacy is highlighted in the title.

Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private liberal arts university affiliated with the Presbyterian church. The university, which has an enrollment of more than 3,000 students, offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
