Alumni Profile: Don Regier

Back in 1965, DTS alumnus and special Bible lecturer the late Dr. J. Vernon McGee mentioned a “prodigal pig.” A young man named Don Regier heard him that day, and that little phrase “prodigal pig” started Regier thinking about a story. He graduated with his ThM in 1969 and has served at DTS for forty-seven years.

Today, he is director of Special Projects and associate professor emeritus as well as serving as adjunct professor. His Prodigal Pig Tale is an interactive e-book for kids of all ages that teaches what it means to forgive and be forgiven. The characters—clay figures which Regier sculpted, painted, and dressed—are set and photographed on a 1:18-scale model pig farm built from scratch. Readers can find additional resources here.
