Extra: Theology on Black Terms with Danté Stewart


In this special off-season episode of Shake the Dust, our guest is Danté Stewart, here to talk to us about his new book that just came out this week — Shoutin’ in the Fire: An American Epistle. We talk to him about his journey finding life and identity in the Black church and Black literary tradition, expanding our definition of what theology is, finding God and faith in the ordinariness of life, and a whole lot more.
