More about David
David MacLeod was born in Nova Scotia, Canada, and raised in Massachusetts (USA). At the age of 16 he became a born-again Christian. After graduating from Worcester State University, he attended Dallas Theological Seminary, where he eventually earned two degrees (ThM and PhD). While at Dallas he formed friendships with Dave Glock and Jack Fish—friendships that have lasted for decades. After graduating from Dallas he spent a summer at Camp Berea in New Hampshire where he met Linda Courtney of Saratoga Springs, New York. He was “smitten at first sight.” They married in 1971 and now have four adult children. From 1970–78 David and Linda lived in Colorado where Dave taught at Western Bible College (now Colorado Christian University). During that time he was deeply involved in the work of Littleton Bible Chapel and became best friends with Alex Strauch. In those years he began a regular preaching ministry among the Brethren assemblies in Colorado. Dave joined the Emmaus faculty in 1983. His research interests include Brethren history and systematic theology—especially Christology, Soteriology, and Eschatology. Throughout his adult life he has been a collector of Christian books—commentaries, theologies, dictionaries, church histories, etc. He says that it has been a wonderful hobby—one that some friends think has gotten out of control!
