He is the author of God Incognito: Bonhoeffer’s Theology of the Cross for the Trump Apocalypse (forthcoming, Wipf and Stock 2017), and you can find some of his reflections on kenotic Christology and culture on his blog at joshvalley.com. He lives in Murillo, Ontario with his wife and their two adorable daughters and is a ‘yuge’ ‘big league’ hockey fan (in other words, he’s into it ‘bigly’), being the sole “Canuck” on staff at Preaching Peace. In his off time, he can be found watching Netflix , hockey, or adventuring the beautiful wilderness of Northwestern Ontario.
