Dr. Benjamin L. Corey
Benjamin L. Corey is an author and speaker with a passion for dissecting the overlap between faith and culture, and exploring the mission of the Church. His articles are read by millions each year between his personal blog at Patheos and contributions for TIME, Sojourners, Red Letter Christians, Christian Weekly, Mennonite World Review, and The Good Men Project. He has also been featured as a guest on HuffPost Live, the Drew Marshall Show, Up For Debate, and has been a repeat guest on Tell Me Everything with John Fugelsang. He is also a syndicated author with MennoNerds, an online collective of influential Mennonite/Anabaptist voices.
He holds a Master of Arts in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts, a Master of Arts in World Missions (Cum Laude), also from Gordon-Conwell, is a member of the Phi Alpha Chi Honors Society, and holds his doctorate in Intercultural Studies (DIS) from Fuller Theological Seminary. His doctoral research was the development of a personal theology of shalom in the context of human trafficking aftercare to enable those in treatment for trauma to achieve a higher degree of personal wholeness and flourishing.
He currently lives in Auburn, Maine with his wife Tracy and has two teenage daughters (Julissa 17, Johanna 14) who they adopted from Peru.
His first book, Undiluted: Rediscovering the Radical Message of Jesus, is available wherever books are sold. Undiluted takes a hard look at the ways American culture has caused us to miss out on the most important aspect of Christian faith: Jesus. Undiluted invites you into his personal story, and into a journey of your own, to rediscover the Jesus of the New Testament– one who looks a lot more radical than the one we often grew up with.
Benjamin is also frequent speaker on a variety of topics and is available for both domestic and international speaking engagements, as well as independent consulting services for human trafficking aftercare programs and related organizations.
He is currently signed to HarperOne Publishing and is represented by the Daniel Literary Agency in Nashville, TN.
Benjamin is also known as an avid tattoo collector.
