(Originally broacast 01/12/17) – Ed Madden, Columbia’s Poet Laureate, writes that poet Tim Conroy “is a theologian of the best kind, a theologian of the ordinary.”

“He knows… [we] face crushing loss and daily difficulties. We have to learn to live the best we can here, now. … [Conroy] points us to a ‘cathedral’ of trees where we are encouraged to find not truth or healing but perspective—to measure ourselves ‘by how a towering / moment passes.’”

Tim Conroy and Ed Madden join Walter Edgar to talk about Conroy’s Theologies of Terrain (Muddy Ford Press, 2017).
