Greg (aka Prof. Z.), a native San Antonian has been a Professor of Systematic Theology at the Oblate School of Theology, a graduate school of theology and ministry here in San Antonio, since 2008. Besides directing the MA in Theology program at Oblate, he teaches Theological Anthropology, Christology, and God in the Christian Tradition courses. At Trinity University he has taught the New Testament course as an Adjunct Professor since 2013. Living with his spouse and two boys close by in the Mahncke Park neighborhood, Greg enjoys “transcendent” things: good local food, beer, and coffee, good walks and hikes, good films and music (as his Trinity students know!), and most importantly good philosophical -theological conversation.
