Casey’s book Becoming Curious was one of our best books of 2017, and Casey’s curiosity is splendidly reflected in this new podcast about wisdom.
Chris and Casey talk about Chris’s recent book [easyazon_link identifier=”083084449X” locale=”US” tag=”douloschristo-20″]Reading for the Common Good: How Books Help Our Churches and Neighborhoods Flourish[/easyazon_link] and his forthcoming book on conversation, How the Body of Christ Talks. Specifically, they explore how reading, presence, and conversation can transform our communities and help us love our neighbor as ourselves.

Podcast. In one recent episode Anne talks with novelist and former social-worker Leigh Kramer about bibliotherapy and grief. Leigh and Anne find that grief is an essential underpinning in so many of their favorite stories, and they talk about why that is.

Hall “lived for most of his life in a 19th century farmhouse in rural New Hampshire and lived, by his own account, much longer than he or anyone else expected. About 30 years ago, Hall lost half his colon to cancer and began working on a memoir called “Life Work.” Midway through writing that memoir, his cancer reappeared and metastasized to his liver. His memoir ended just as his chemotherapy was about to begin. And doctors gave him a 1 in 3 chance of living more than five years. That was 25 years ago, in 1993.”
C. Christopher Smith is the founding editor of The Englewood Review of Books. He is also author of a number of books, including most recently How the Body of Christ Talks: Recovering the Practice of Conversation in the Church (Brazos Press, 2019). Connect with him online at: C-Christopher-Smith.com
