About Mathias Zahniser

What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

The friendship I have formed here among the faculty, staff, administration and students.

What attracted you to the Religion Department, and how do you use it outside of the classroom?

I was attracted to the study of religion by my mentor and professor at Greenville College, Dr. James A. Reinhard. He led me to believe I had what it took to be a theologian. I started my career as a missionary and finished it as a professor of world religions, particularly Islam. Professor Reinhard reinforced my interest in Islam as well.
