Ryan McAnnally-Linz (PhD, Yale) is a systematic theologian and Associate Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture. He works at the intersection of theology, ethics, and cultural criticism. His interests include (but are by no means limited to) the theological ethics of humility, the place of eschatology in Christian thought and life, biblical theology, the philosophy of Charles Taylor, and understanding the work of his many teachers. Ryan co-authored Public Faith in Action (Brazos), a Publishers Weekly Best Book in Religion in 2016, with Miroslav Volf, and he co-edited The Joy of Humility (Baylor University Press, 2020) and Envisioning the Good Life (Cascade, 2017). His scholarly articles have appeared in Modern Theology, The Scottish Journal of Theology, and elsewhere.

A native of Southern California with strong ties to Latin America and sensibility-shaping sojourns in both Buckinghamshire, England and Hanover, NH, Ryan has made his home—with only the slightest reluctance—in New Haven since 2008. Ryan is married to Heidi McAnnally-Linz, and they have two children. They worship with and serve at the Elm City Vineyard in New Haven.
