About

Matthew Philipp Whelan is a full-time lecturer in the Department of Religion at Baylor University. His first book, Blood in the Fields: Óscar Romero, Catholic Social Teaching, and Land Reform (Catholic University of America Press, 2020) examines Romero through the lens of land reform, arguing that Romero’s advocacy for justice in the distribution of land helps illumine the meaning of his ministry and martyrdom. Matthew holds degrees from the University of Virginia (BA), Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (MSc), and Duke University (MTS, PhD), and his articles have appeared in Modern Theology, Journal for the Society of Christian Ethics, Communio, Journal of Moral Theology, and Nova et Vetera, among other venues. He currently resides in Waco, Texas, with his wife Natalie and their three daughters, Chora, Edith, and Simone.
