Fout wrote his dissertation on the glory of God and its relation to human agency at Cambridge, under the supervision of Professor David F. Ford and the late Professor Daniel W. Hardy. Other theologians and philosophers who have influenced his work include Donald MacKinnon, Rowan Williams, Sarah Coakley, Paul Ricoeur, Thomas Aquinas, Karl Barth and Hans Urs von Balthasar. His research interests include contemporary Anglican theology, as well as the history of Anglican theology and constructive theology in the areas of Christology, political theology and theological anthropology. He also has a growing interest in the practice of Scriptural Reasoning, in urban studies, particularly related to the New Urbanism, and theological readings of the built environment.

He is an avid cook, a keen road cyclist and a longsuffering fan of the Chicago Cubs and English Test Cricket.

He enjoys opportunities to preach and teach in local parishes. He would be prepared to teach on the topics of:

Who is Jesus Christ/ what is Christ’s mission and work?
Scriptural Reasoning
the Fear of God
the Problem of Evil/ suffering
New Urbanism/ built environment
Creation
(And he would be happy to receive any inquiries on other topics!)
