Dr. Kyle Lambelet teaches and researches at the intersection of political theology, religious ethics and social change. His current research explores the moral and political dimensions of nonviolent struggle. He is writing a book tentatively titled ¡Presente! Nonviolent Politics and the Resurrection of the Dead that develops an extended case study of the movement to close the School of the Americas.

Before coming to Candler, Lambelet worked for several years in faith rooted organizing for racial and economic justice in the southeast United States. He lived for a season at the Open Door Community, a Catholic Worker community in Atlanta, and worked with the Greensboro Truth and Community Reconciliation project, the first citizen initiated truth and reconciliation process in the United States. Pursuing the questions formed during these experiences, he completed an MTS at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and a PhD in the joint degree program in Theology and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame.

At Candler, Lambelet teaches courses in the Justice, Peacebuilding and Conflict Transformation concentration.

Lambelet is a committed lay leader in the Episcopal Church. He currently serves as the managing editor for the web presence of the Political Theology Network, a Luce funded initiative. He also serves on the board of the Fellowship for Protestant Ethics.
