Show Notes

The book of Revelation is used by televangelist to do untold craziness. Yet our mate Dr. Wess Daniels’ new book “Resisting Empire” asks, "what if the book of Revelation was rescued from revenge fantasies to again encourage Christ-like communities to resist the dehumanising forces of empire?" C. Wess Daniels is the William R. Rogers Director of Friends Center & Quaker Studies at Guilford College. He lives in Greensboro, North Carolina with his wife, Emily, and their three children and three chickens. Wess is interested in strategizing better human interactions, spiritual development, and revitalization of tradition and community. Support us on our [Patreon Page](http://www.patreon.com/inverse)
