WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Krish is an inspiration. I love working with him. He is authentic, collaborative, and sensitive to what others feel and think. He is humble and gracious, but somehow also manages to command authority that takes people with him, willingly, on a journey of learning and discovery. He puts his words into action, his own interests aside for others and is fearless in his pursuit of social justice. He is the man, my dog thinks I am.

"Krish is an extraordinary communicator who brings warmth, wit and wisdom, compelling audiences to think, feel and take action. Skillfully weaving together stories, statistics and questions that spark fresh perspective, he thoughtfully engages minds to move past preconceptions and see new possibilities. Our entire team found Krish to be an incredibly invested contributor from prep to event and our global audience of more than 400,000 leaders were greatly impacted by his teaching."
Professor of Ethics
Kandiah helps us recover how odd the God we worship as Christians turns out to be. It seems God shows up even as a Jewish peasant. Such a God can scare the hell out of us, but I guess that’s the point. So read this book as a challenge to our domesticated imaginations.
commendation for the book
God is Stranger
Krish offers a deep invitation to rediscover the radical hospitable nature of God's inclusive love. I believe this truth can lead us towards home together.
