David C. Oughton, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Theological Studies

Saint Louis University

I have taught over four hundred courses in theology, philosophy, the world's religions, peace studies, and Holocaust studies since 1976 at various schools in the St. Louis area. I have also made over a hundred presentations on religious and philosophical topics at various churches, synagogues, temples, community centers, and professional conferences. I am the founder and organizer of St. Louis' Dialogue Group of the World's Religions and Philosophies which has brought together people from many different religions for the last twenty-five years for community programs and for discussions about their common questions, hopes, and concerns. My hobbies are golf, movies, reading, and traveling. My wife and I have a son and a daughter.
