About Dr. Sutanto

Dr. N. Gray Sutanto joins as the assistant professor of systematic theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington D.C., in the summer of 2020. He did his doctoral work under the supervision of James Eglinton at the University of Edinburgh, focusing on the 19th century Dutch Reformed theologian, Herman Bavinck.

Ordained in the International Presbyterian Church, he has served as a teaching elder in Covenant City Church, Jakarta, Indonesia, and has received a visiting fellowship at Kampen Theological University. Other than Herman Bavinck, Dr. Sutanto’s research interests are broad, ranging from modern Protestant theology, prolegomena, humanity and sin, the relationship between philosophy and theology, analytic theology, and Christianity and culture. Current projects include volumes on the theological contours of neo-Calvinism and the doctrines of humanity and sin. He is also an associate fellow at the Neo-Calvinism Research Institute, based in Kampen, Holland.

He is married to Indita Probosutedjo. Dr. Sutanto grew up in Jakarta and Singapore, and on his spare time enjoys watching indie movies, playing the guitar, and reading.
