Anthony Roberts is a scholar whose interests are at the intersection of theology, constructions of human difference (race, ethnicity, and additional ways of theorizing otherness), and the Spirit. Much of his ongoing doctoral work concerns itself with making connections between Pentecostal ways of thinking about God’s presence/activity in the midst of the diversity of creation and other Christian traditions.

Roberts also serves the academy in several capacities. He was the student director for the Rocky Mountain-Great Plains region of the American Academy of Religion (2016-2018). Currently, Roberts is the diversity committee chairperson for the Society of Pentecostal Studies and the book review editor for Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies. Throughout his academic career, Roberts has and continues to serve in pastoral roles in the local church. In 2014, he became an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God (Cleveland, Tenn.) and ministers within the Florida-Cocoa region of the denomination. Roberts is currently pursuing his PhD in Religious/Theological Studies through the University of Denver/Iliff School of Theology.
