When was the last time you read a book that told your story through the personal story of the author? Add in biblical scholarship, intersectionality, decolonization, history, and current events and you have Kat Armas’ book, Abuelita Faith. In this episode, Blake and Erin have a lively discussion with Kat Armas about the “protagonistas” in Scripture, history, and Armas’ own family who help us see a God who loves us and is revealed through the lived theology of women of color, indigenous voices, and cultural diversity.
