Obery Hendricks

“Obery M. Hendricks, Jr. is one of the greatest intellectuals and most exciting scholars in America today. His range and depth…are astonishing.”

Michael Eric Dyson
Georgetown University

“Hendricks is unflinching in his criticism of conservative impulses in the church and in the government that prey on the most vulnerable.”

Melissa Harris-Perry
Tulane University; Host, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry

“Hendricks is one of the last few grand prophetic scholars in these dark and difficult times. [The Universe Bends Toward Justice] exemplifies his courageous and visionary vision.”

Cornel West
Princeton University
