Lee and Kerry Gatiss and childrenAbout the Editor

Lee Gatiss

Lee Gatiss read Modern History at New College, Oxford. After working for St. Ebbe's Church in Oxford for a while, he was a student on the Cornhill Training Course in London, with a placement doing student work at All Soul’s, Langham Place.

From there he proceeded to read Theological & Pastoral Studies at Oak Hill Theological College in London, staying on for a fourth year to continue masters research into the Old Testament (intertextuality in Malachi).

After three years as the Curate of St. Botolph’s, Barton Seagrave and St. Edmund’s, Warkton, for more than five years Lee was the Associate Minister of St. Helen’s, Bishopsgate in the City of London with responsibility for the Sunday Morning congregation and midweek groups as well as the delightful members of the Church Family staff team, and Reform London. While in London he also completed a ThM in Historical and Systematic Theology with Westminster Theological Seminary in the USA. He is currently doing research on 17th century biblical interpretation at Peterhouse and Tyndale House, Cambridge.

Lee is married to Kerry and they have three children.  In addition to editing The Theologian he runs the Gatiss family website and has published reviews and articles in the magazine The Briefing and journals Churchman and Themelios, as well as several on this site.  He is a member of the Latimer Trust Theological Work Group, the Editorial Board of the journal Churchman, and part of the Fellowship of Word and Spirit. He has published three short books: The Tragedy of 1662, Christianity and the Tolerance of Liberalism, and From Life's First Cry.

To relax, Lee greatly enjoys reading Tom Clancy novels, listening to New Order and Handel, watching sci-fi and spy-fi, and revelling in the genius of Manchester United (having lived 10 minutes from Old Trafford for many years). Sadly, his extended family supports Manchester City!
