Meet the Authors
Professor of Theology
Seattle Pacific University
Dr. Dearborn brings to us insights from her new book, Drinking from the Wells of New Creation: The Holy Spirit and the Imagination in Reconciliation. She draws from the imagination and creativity within our relationship with the Holy Spirit in order to reflect on bringing reconciliation into life.
Director of Gang Initiative
Through the creative work in his new book, Wanted: A Spiritual Pursuit Through Jail, Among Outlaws, and Across Borders, Hoke is able to translate stories that offer new eyes for seeing forgotten souls who have been cast away from society, based on the experience he has serving as night-shift chaplain at a men's correctional facility.
