John Kelsay is an author and a Research Professor and Richard L. Rubenstein Professor of Religion at Florida State University. He received his Ph.D. in 1985 in Ethics from University of Virginia. He mainly focuses on religious ethics, particularly in relation to the Islamic and Christian traditions. His research interests include comparative religious ethics, political ethics, and religion and war.

Kelsay's 1993 book, Islam And War: A Study in Comparative Ethics, discussed the Islamic concept of jihad as compared with the Christian concept of just war. His 2007 book, Arguing the Just War in Islam, was praised by the New York Times for helping to bring greater understanding of Islamic views of war and peace to the non-Islamic world.

In 2007 Kelsay visited Oman and urged students there to challenge fellow Muslims who used the concept of jihad to justify acts of violence.
