What people are saying:
“C. Christopher Smith offers a fresh, rich and quite unfamiliar proposal concerning human renewal and church regeneration. He exposits the cruciality of reading, thinking and conversing in the community as a bedrock practice for a sustainable missional community. His project serves to awaken us from our numbing ‘electronic slumbers’ into a slow engagement with imaginative words. I suggest that this book can be a valuable reference for pastoral nurture and education in the church.” – Walter Brueggemann
“Having devoted the entirety of my personal and professional life to the vision and practices laid out in Reading for the Common Good, I offer a hearty ‘Hear! Hear!’ This book will inspire, motivate and challenge anyone who cares a whit about the written word, the world of ideas, the shape of our communities and the life of the church.” – Karen Swallow Prior
