Theologies of Resistance
We live in a time where the message of Jesus and the agenda of the powerful are in conflict, where the hidden systems of domination are being revealed, where the need for a movement of justice and a people of resistance is ever more clear.

Knowing intimately that the borderlands are a place of learning and growth, Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza draws on their identity and heritage as a queer Latinx in everything that they do. From doubt to divine and everywhere in between, their call as an activist-theologian demands the vision to disrupt hegemony and colonialist structures of multi-layered oppression. As an anti-oppression, anti-racist, non-binary Trans*gressive Latinx, Robyn takes seriously their call as an activist theologian and ethicist to bridge together theories and practices that result in communities responding to pressing social concerns.
Rev. Dr. Tripp Fuller is the founder and host of the #1 theology podcast - Homebrewed Christianity - where he’s been bringing the audiological nerdiness out of the academy and into your earbuds since 2008. He is the author or editor of 8 books, including The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Jesus, and recently celebrated his first year as a Doctor having earned his PhD in Philosophy, Religion, and Theology at Claremont Graduate University. Tripp is a minister, husband, father of three, craft beer lover, and overly enthusiastic Lakers fan.
