Dr. Dennis Edwards, professor of New Testament at North Park Seminary in Chicago, is on the podcast! His book, Might From the Margins, specifically addresses and encourages Christians who have found themselves marginalized within American Evangelicalism, including Christians of color and women. One of the things I appreciate most about this text and conversation is that Dennis includes sociological, experiential, and biblical hermeneutics in his discussion.
Connect with Dennis through his website or on Twitter.
