Dr Morrison holds a Bachelor of Economics from Macquarie University. He has gained a Bachelor of Theology with honours in Philosophy and a Masters in Theology whilst studying at Yarra Theological Union, Melbourne. He completed his doctoral studies in Systematic Theology and Continental Thought at Australian Catholic University, Melbourne where he has also held a lecturing position. Dr. Morrison has published in journals such as The Heythrop Journal, Irish Theological Quarterly, the Journal of Ecumenical Studies and the Australian eJournal of Theology. His research interests include Trinitarian Theology, the Theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, the Philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas, Judaism, Interfaith Relations and Pastoral Theology. In the Fall Semester of 2012, Dr. Morrison was visiting professor at the University of Portland, Oregon where he taught in the Master of Arts and Pastoral Ministry Program (MAPM). Since 2011 he has been on the executive for the Council of Christians and Jews Western Australia, and in 2013 was elected as Chairperson.
In 2013, Dr. Morrison's book, A Theology of Alterity: Levinas, von Balthasar and Trinitarian Praxis will be published with Duquesne University Press. The book engages Emmanuel Levinas' philosophy with Hans Urs von Balthasar's theology as a means to develop a language of alterity (or otherness) for theology in a variety of contexts: paschal mystery, Trinity, eschatology, Paul's encounter of the risen Christ, emotions, mental health, forgiveness, film, Jewish-Christian friendship, and living at the margins of life.
