Come learn about the legacy of a fellow Badger who died in 2013 at age 77. Dallas was a UW PhD in Philosophy (1964) who went on to a distinguished career at USC (1965-2013). He made his contributions in his field which we will hear about, but he is known in the church world for his wide and deep impact through his books. Those books include:

The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives (1988). San Francisco: Harper and Row,
·
The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life in God (1998). San Francisco: Harper,
·
Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship With God (1999). InterVarsity Press

·
Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ (2002). Colorado Springs: NavPress,

The Allure of Gentleness: Defending the Faith in the Manner of Jesus (2015) San Francisco: HarperCollins
Dallas used to preach at the little church on Blackhawk Avenue that has incubated a number of churches over the years.

Our speakers will include:
Mary Daniel – an emeritus professor from the Dept of Spanish and Portuguese. She knew Dallas when they were grad students here at UW. Mary has solicited recollections of others from that era (the 60’s) as well.
Nick Jacobsen – a recent PhD graduate from the Dept of History (History of Science) who can speak to Dallas' contributions as a philosopher in phenomenology. Nick is soon off to Paris for a postdoc.
