Dr. David Nah

We are so fortunate that along our alumni are some of the nation's best and most inspirational spiritual leaders. One spiritual leader linked to NU is David Nah, an Assistant Professor of Theology at Bethal University. Born and raised in South Korea, Nah immigrated to the U.S. when he was about 10 years old. He grew up in Chicago and earned a B.A. from Northwestern. He also holds an M.Div. from Alliance Theological Seminary, a Th.M. from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University.

Speaking at a ceremony at Bethal in which Nah was recently honored for his contributions to theology, Nah said:

"The 21st century should be characterized as the century of religious pluralism. We live in an increasingly religious world where religious pluralism is one of the most important, if not the most important, theological issues of our day.”

His current research plans include books on John Hick’s theology of religious pluralism, Voices in Asian-American Theology, Systematic Theology in a Global Age, and a book on a Christian theology of religions. We very much look forward to reading Dr. Nah's forthcoming books.
