Jill Carattini


Jill Carattini is managing editor and principal writer of A Slice of Infinity, a daily reading considering themes from theology and culture to philosophy and the arts. She holds a degree in religion from Hope College, a masters of divinity from Western Theological Seminary, and a Th.M from Duke University, where she studied sacramental theology and the arts. Jill is ordained as a specialized minister in the Reformed Church of America, where she serves on the theology commission.

She is a frequent speaker and panelist on the subject of theology and the arts, teaches workshops in creative writing, and is leading the charge in RZIM’s growing emphasis on the arts and imagination as a critical means to engage contemporary culture with the person of Christ. Jill has lived and worked in diverse ministry settings, including urban ministry and university campus ministry.

She has spent time in a Native American community working within a local mission church in Oklahoma, and has studied in the Middle East, participating in a program aimed at understanding the culture, history, and politics of the Middle Eastern conflict. She enjoys reading widely in areas of theology, aesthetics, culture, and reconciliation. Among her favorite writers are John Calvin, Jeremy Begbie, Flannery O’Connor, Marilynn Robinson, Wendell Berry, and many of the early church pilgrims, though an early love of the writings of C.S. Lewis was most formative in her own faith and writing. Jill is a native of Pentwater, Michigan, and currently resides with her husband, Tony, and their son in Atlanta, Georgia.
