It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of Dr. David Priestley, on October 17th. He taught at Taylor Seminary (then North American Baptist Divinity School) from 1982-2001 as Professor of Historical Theology. His area of focus was Systematic Theology and Historical Theology, and he taught courses in theology, ethics and church history. He was an amazing treasure of historical facts, particularly about Baptists in Canada, but was also known for his wit and keen sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by our community.
