He is also the author of The Mainliner's Survival Guide to the Post-Denominational World, from Chalice Press, about how mainline denominations can avoid despair in an uncertain world. His newest book, Outlandish: An Unlikely Messiah, a Messy Ministry, and the Call to Mobilize (Chalice Press, 2019), focuses on understanding the political nature of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection as a model for forming communities of resistance capable of challenging oppression in the pursuit of peace and justice.
