In this prophetic collection of sermons, pastor, judge, and prophet Wendell L. Griffen challenges followers of Jesus, those social justice-minded pastors, congregational leaders, religious educators, grassroots activists and advocates, and other faithful persons, to ponder these questions:
What does it mean to be a "prophetic follower of Jesus"?
How will lessons in Scripture and across human history inform our action in the world?
How can we speak of hope in a time of deep divisiona time too often defined by racism, misogyny, materialism, militarism, religious nationalism, and xenophobia?
