In preparation for work in youth ministry, Brenton Dickieson took a B.A. from Maritime Christian College. After ministries in Alberta and Japan, he moved to Regent College in Vancouver to student biblical literature and languages at the graduate level. Since returning to his home province of Prince Edward Island in 2005, he has owned a business, taught at the undergraduate and graduate level, led in camp ministry, and worked as a research consultant for Government on higher education, justice, and immigration policy. In 2013 he began a Ph.D. in theology and literature at the University of Chester.

Brenton is Adjunct Professor in Theology at Maritime Christian College, and a Sessional Professor at the Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture at the University of Prince Edward Island. Brenton is a Distance Education Instructor at Regent College for two of Eugene Peterson’s courses in Spiritual Theology. He is also a Lecturer and Preceptor in Signum University’s M.A. in Language and Literature.

Brenton’s Ph.D. research focusses on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, considering how the creation of fictional universes helps in spiritual formation, theological exploration, and cultural criticism. His popular blog, www.aPilgrimInNarnia.com, explores the intersections of faith, culture, and fictional literature.
