On this week’s podcast, Ed Thornton talks to Hannah Malcolm about a new book that she has edited, Words for a Dying World: Stories of grief and courage from the global Church.
“I wanted to help people to think about the ways that grief over the world isn’t about death in abstraction. . . The ways that we grieve the world will be particular to the places we come from and the things we’ve experienced. And we don’t come from the same places, so we have a great deal to learn from the grief of people who have different experiences to us and dialogue with those different experiences can make our understanding of this kind of grief richer.”
You can read extracts from the book here and here.
Hannah is an ordinand and PhD candidate at Cranmer Hall, Durham, and was the winner of the 2019 Theology Slam competition (News, Comment, 15 March 2019).
Words for a Dying World is published on Monday (7 December) by SCM Press at £15.99 (Church Times Bookshop £12.99).
