When it comes to the internet, everyone has a platform. In a matter of seconds, you can state your opinion on social media, in a personal blog, or in the comment section on YouTube or Tik Tok.
The only difference between the opinions of some and others is whether or not someone else is reading it.
Literarily, this decade might be defined by outsiders to the business of professional theological writers. Yes, we still have our Brueggemanns, McLarens, and DBBs. But this decade gave us Rachel Held Evans, Jen Hatmaker, Sarah Bessey, and so many others that have given rise to a new voice and face to the theological landscape.
One of these rising stars Kaitlin Curtice.
“It’s amazing and intimidating at the same time, to have the honor to write words that resonate with many while also trying to do well by them,” said Curtice.
Kaitlin is the author of Glory Happening, as well as a contributing writer for Sojourners, Relevant, and several other publications. She is an activist and speaker, giving voice to issues of justice and equality.
