John Dally

John Addison Dally is a writer, educator and priest. His particular interest is theological pedagogy--how people learn about God and religion in meaningful and transformative ways. As a result his teaching is based in experience rather than lecture, an approach that works especially well for diverse communities of learners. He is the author of eight plays, a cycle of pageants for children based on medieval mystery plays, nine works for speech choir, and two novels. John serves as professor of theology and culture and as artist-in-residence at St. Peter's Church in Chicago.
