Welcome to Madang

About Madang:

Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renown authors, leaders, public figures and scholars on religion, culture and everything in-between.

This has been a dream of mine for many years and now it is. reality. Please join me at madang.

This is the thirteenth episode of Madang where I converse with Chris Smith.

C. Christopher Smith is Senior Editor of The Englewood Review of Books, and author of several books, including most recently How The Body of Christ Talks: Recovering the Practice of Conversation in the Church. In addition to writing and editing, Chris works with churches across North America, helping them cultivate a deeper life together in their places.

Praise for How the Body of Christ Talks:

“In a world full of talking heads and devoid of attentive ears, Smith’s practical book teaches us through poetic metaphors, useful advice, and theological wisdom how to be present to one another. How the Body of Christ Talks shows us a way of healthy, soulful dialogue.”
Rev. Carol Howard Merritt, author of Healing Spiritual Wounds

Conversations on Chris Smith shares about the Englewood Review of Books, the body of Christ, spirituality for the journey, prayer, and the messiness of life and his book, How the Body of Christ Talks and so much more. Please stay tuned.
