Episode 212 - Dennis Edwards

Dr. Dennis Edwards is back! If you missed our first conversation, be sure to go back and listen – you’ll be glad you did! This time we chatted about a book that was just released, edited by Dennis and Lisa Bowens called Do Black Lives Matter? In this conversation, we talk about a few of the contributions to the book, an African American hermeneutic, and his essay on police violence. While the compilation began in 2020, the words are still as relevant today. Any time Dennis shares his scholarly and pastoral voice, I am here ready to listen!
