John Addison 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. Dally is the author of Choosing the Kingdom: Missional Preaching for the Household of God (Alban, 2008) as well as eight plays, a cycle of pageants for children based on medieval mystery plays, nine works for speech choir, and two novels. Dally serves as professor of theology and culture for Bexley Seabury and is a resident priest at Church of Our Saviour in Chicago.
