College in Amherst, NY; M.A. and Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from The Catholic
University of America in Washington, D.C. 

Dr. Ekeh’s theological interests are in John Henry Newman, 20th Century Roman Catholic
theology, Theology of God/Trinity, Christian Anthropology, Eschatology, and the
intersection of theology and science. Dr. Ekeh is currently working on a book-length
project on the phenomenology of John Henry Newman. 

Teaching responsibilities: Introduction to Theology; The Search for Truth, Justice and
the Common Good; Faith and Science; The Life and Writings of John Henry Newman; Christian
