Rev. Dr. Derek Penwell joins the pod to talk about his book Outlandish: An Unlikely Messiah, a Messy Ministry, and the Call to Mobilize. The book shows how Jesus's ministry flew in the face of conventional wisdom but succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. Fast-forwarding two thousand years, learn from the political, social, and organizational lessons of Jesus's radically different ministry to help change the world today.
Derek is a pastor, author, and activist unashamedly offering his support in the pursuit of justice for LGBTQ people, Muslims, people of color, immigrants, and those people regularly dumped on by the tools who always seem to find themselves in charge of everything.
