Fear is a good reason to shake while you do it,
but it’s not a good reason to *not* do it.

 

Benjamin L. Corey is a writer, speaker, global traveler, and somewhat of a badass.

He has a passion for writing about the intersection of faith and culture, traveling, and political issues, with his work read by millions each year. He has been seen in TIME, CNN, Huffington Post, and blogs regularly at Patheos. He is also the author of Undiluted: Rediscovering the Radical Message of Jesus, and Unafraid: Moving Beyond Fear-Based Faith.

BLC has traveled to over 40 countries in his lifetime and has lived extended periods abroad, in accordance with his passion for experiencing and understanding diversity of cultures. He a good-will ambassador sponsored by the Jordanian Tourism Bureau and has blogged extensively about travel opportunities in the Kingdom of Jordan. He also serves with World Vision USA and has traveled to write about cold weather poverty in Armenia as well as anti-poverty initiatives in the Dominican Republic.  

He was also the sword drill champion of Vacation Bible School in 1985, but has now become a target for the Religious Right. Both are achievements he's still proud of.
