Reading Writers: Brandon Smith, J.A. Medders, & 100 Deadly Skills

Reading Writers Podcast

It’s finally here: episode one of Reading Writers is now live!

Each week, I’ll be speaking with Christian authors and writers about what they’re writing, but also about what they’re reading—and how reading widely can help us grow as believers, as creators and disciple-makers.

What you’ll hear in this episode

This week, I’m joined by Brandon Smith and J.A. Medders, authors of the new book, Rooted: Theology for Growing Christians. During our discussion, we talk about:

  • Why we can’t leave theology to the (professional) theologians;
  • The good news about eschatology;
  • Brandon’s first and most important reading rule, and why he likes reading sports biographies;
  • The sentences and paragraphs that have shaped us;
  • Brandon slamming Canadians (at least this one); and
  • What Jeff’s learning as he reads 100 Deadly Skills.

Who will be on the next episode of Reading Writers?

Next week, I’ll be joined by Tim Challies, to talk about his brand-new book, Visual Theology, reading challenges and what he really thinks of graphic novels. There are some fightin’ words in this one, so look for a new feud to start soon.

  2. […] Rooted: Theology for Growing Christians by J.A. Medders and Brandon D. Smith. Rooted is tiny, which makes it a great read for new believers. This book is really a crash course on Christian theology—what is it, why it matters and why eschatology is actually filled with good news. (For more on this book, check out the first episode of Reading Writers.) […]
