Welcome to Madang Podcast.

““Prayer is good, but Jesus wasn’t crucified because he prayed too much.” Christian Century.

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 22nd episode of Madang where I converse with Dean Kelly Brown Douglas on her book, Resurrection Hope.

The Very Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas was named Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary and Professor of Theology at Union in September 2017.  She was named the Bill and Judith Moyers Chair in Theology in November 2019.  She also serves as the Canon Theologian at the Washington National Cathedral and Theologian in Residence at Trinity Church Wall Street.

Dean Douglas’ academic work has focused on womanist theology, Black theology, sexuality and the Black church, and racial and social justice. 

So thankful to have Dean Kelly Brown Douglas to discuss her book, Resurrection Hope.

Conversations about whiteness, anti-blackness in the church, just communities, #blacklivesmatter, resurrection, hope and so much more.


”Kelly Brown Douglas is a towering theologian in this Age of Black Lives Matter who builds on and goes beyond the profound legacies of James Cone and James Baldwin, Katie Cannon and Delores Williams! Resurrection Hope takes us on a courageous and visionary journey full of brilliant scholarship, political struggle and spiritual determination.–Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary
