How the Book of Revelation Deconstructs Empire with Dr. Ryan Hansen

Dr. Ryan Hansen joins the podcast today to discuss the Book of Revelation.

Dr. Ryan Leif Hansen received a Ph.D. in New Testament from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. He teaches at Garrett-Evangelical and is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene in Chicago. He is the author of Silence and Praise: Rhetorical Cosmology and Political Theology in the Book of Revelation.
