    Dr. Peng Yin is currently completing a manuscript, Persisting in the Good: Thomas Aquinas and Classical Chinese Ethics. This volume explores the intelligibility of moral language across metaphysical differences and the prospect of rethinking Christian teaching on human nature, sacrament, and eschatology in conversation with Chinese thought. His research focuses on Thomas Aquinas, comparative ethics, Chinese theology, and religion and sexuality.

    At Candler, Yin teaches Christian Ethics, Queer Theology, and Ethics of Thomas Aquinas. Yin’s teaching has been recognized by Harvard’s Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning for excellence in undergraduate teaching, and his research has been supported by the Political Theology Network, Yale’s Fund for Gay and Lesbian Studies, and Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History.
