So thankful to have Chris Hedges on today to discuss his book, Our Class.
Conversation about his ordination and prison ministry, White liberals in the church, Jesus and insurrection, and more.
Praise for Our Class:
A powerfully moving book that “could make graspable why today’s prisons are contemporary slave plantations” (Alice Walker), giving voice to the poorest among us and laying bare the cruelty of a penal system that too often defines their lives.
I am also grateful to Dr. Graham Joseph Hill for supporting Madang podcast. You can check out his Global Church Project for all the latest videos, blogs and news.
