Andre Rabe is a writer, public speaker, philosopher, and radical theologian. Together with his wife, Mary-Anne, they began their ministry as missionaries in Africa in 1990. Today they engage with communities all over the world, inviting them to enter into that childlike enjoyment of knowing that we are loved, that this universe is full of wonder, and that our Abba is with us every step of the way. This message finds its clearest articulation in Jesus, who models such openness to the God of possibility.
Andre has authored numerous books and has a reputation for taking complex topics, which are often presented in a very academic manner, and making them clear, simple, and practical. In his latest book, Desire Found Me, he largely draws from Rene Girard’s ground-breaking anthropological insights, showing how the human story and God’s story find their crescendo in Jesus. The God who does not justify our violence, but suffers it, has opened a new way of being human.
Andre and Mary-Anne are also the founders of Mimesis Academy, an online course and community that explore the depth of Jesus’ reflection of God and how that can practically transform our desires and experience.
