Biography

Dr. Scott D. Geis, Professor, Dean of Rosa Deal School of Arts. Dr. Geis joined the Religion and Philosophy faculty at Christian Brothers University in the fall of 2005. Prior to coming to CBU, he served on the faculties of St. Norbert College for four years as Visiting Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, and at Marquette University for thirteen years, both in the Department of Theology and College of Professional Studies as an Adjunct Assistant Professor. After earning his B.A. from Bethel College in 1980 and his M.Div. from Bethel Theological Seminary in 1985, Dr. Geis went on to earn a M.Th. in Theology and Ethics from Duke University in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Marquette University in 1995. His primary areas of study are systematic theology and theological ethics, with special interests in the problem of evil (theodicy), contemporary atheism and theism, Christology, the theologies of Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the life and writings of Søren Kierkegaard and Simone Weil, and the religious thought of C. S. Lewis. Dr. Geis most enjoys time with his wife and daughter, visiting family, good friends, conversations with colleagues and students, reading, running, racquetball, and listening to good music – especially the Beatles, U2, and the Pat Metheny Group. The years he and his wife spent in Durham, NC at Duke University explains his rather intense devotion to Blue Devil basketball.
