About Jesse

Version 2The Rev. Dr. Jesse Zink is an Anglican/Episcopal priest, author, and principal of Montreal Diocesan Theological College. His most recent book, Christianity and Catastrophe in South Sudan, was published in 2018.

He is the author of three previous books on mission and global Christianity. Backpacking through the Anglican Communion: A Search for Unity draws on his extensive travels in the world church to paint a picture of grassroots Anglican life around the world and argue that, in an age of globalization, unity is central to the mission of a worldwide communion. Grace at the Garbage Dump: Making Sense of Mission in the Twenty-First Century draws on his experience as a missionary in Mthatha, South Africa to critique, challenge, and expand notions of Christian mission and evangelism. A Faith for the Future is an introduction to theology and mission in The Episcopal Church. You can read more about all these books elsewhere on this website.

Jesse has also been a DJ, a news reporter, and an ambulance driver. In addition to Cambridge, he has degrees from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, the University of Chicago, and Yale Divinity School.
