John Laracy teaches full time in the Department of Religious Studies. He has taught a variety of undergraduate courses at Seton Hall, including "Christian Ethics," "Medieval Christian Thought," "Modern Christian Thought," "Christian Belief and Thought," "Christianity and Culture in Dialogue," and "Journey of Transformation." He has also taught "The Trinity" at the graduate level for the School of Theology. His research focuses on contemporary systematic theology, especially the Trinity. In 2018, he received his PhD from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family at the Catholic University of America. He is currently working on a book manuscript based on his dissertation titled, “Divine Love as Event: A Study in the Trinitarian Theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar." He is also studying the extent to which Bernard Lonergan's philosophy and theology can be harmonized with the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar.
