In a series of some down home and some in-your-face stories, essays, and sermons Kyle Childress and Rodney Kennedy pay homage to Will Campbell. Childress and Kennedy insist that Will is a far more significant theologian than he’s given credit for being. Will went against the grain, took on the powers and principalities that rule by fear. Whether the stories slip up on you like smooth bourbon or the essays attack your senses, you are in for a wild ride.
