Esther Reed - speaker at Holy Ground and Remembrance lecture in Exeter CathedralEsther D. Reed is Professor of Theological Ethics and Director of the Network for Religion in Public Life, an interdisciplinary research partnership that links students and staff at the University of Exeter with persons and institutions who share interests in how religion interacts with public life. Her most recent book The Limit of Responsibility: Engaging Dietrich Bonhoeffer in a Globalizing Era (Bloomsbury, 2018)  frames the question of responsibility as a problem of agency in relation to the systems and structures of globalization.

Esther’s local church is St Thomas Methodist. She enjoys a bit of gardening and walking.
