Thanks to our sponsor for this episode, Brazos Press,
publisher of the new book, How the Body of Christ Talks, by C. Christopher Smith:
In today’s highly charged environment, we often don’t know how to talk well with others—especially with people whose backgrounds differ from our own. In How the Body of Christ Talks, C. Christopher Smith addresses why conversation has become such a challenge for us and argues that it is perhaps the most-needed spiritual practice of our individualistic age. Smith shows how church communities can be where we learn to talk with and listen to one another with kindness and compassion. In community, we learn what it means to belong to others and to a story that is bigger than ourselves.
Reading for the Common Good
From ERB Editor Christopher Smith
"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."
