Max DC launches book on birthday


Veteran actor, playwright, filmmaker and storyteller, Maxwell Chiphinga, better known as Max DC, on Saturday had a double celebration.

He launched his first book titled The Law vs Grace and also celebrated his birthday at Blantyre Cultural Centre (BCC).

Max DC, who got born again in 2007 and founded Line One Ministries, was born on February 29 1972.


He, therefore, decided to launch the book on the day he was born. “I deliberately launched the book on my birthday because I wanted people to celebrate with me. I am thankful to God that I have added another year. I am also thankful that he gave me ideas to write my first book,” Max DC said. After the launch of the book which attracted a sizeable audience, Max DC later celebrated his birthday when his brother brought a cake on stage.

He did not cut the cake on stage but rather the audience sung a happy birthday song for him as he mentioned how old he was.

“I am happy to have officially launched the book and now it is on the market. People should buy the book and read as well as get the message,” he said.


“The Law versus Grace is a book that opens you up so that you know what Jesus Christ really did for you. Many Christians, including those of other faith, do not really appreciate the cross because they have no idea as to what Jesus Christ redeemed them from”.

Malawi Writers Union (Mawu) President, Sambalikagwa Mvona, hailed Max DC for publishing his first book.

“We need to write, as Mawu, we are happy that writers are coming out. We need not to wait to grow old to write. Let us do it now. Max DC is multitalented; he does music, drama, storytelling and he decided to combine all those talents to publish a book. It is a motivational book,” Mvona said.

Smith Likongwe, who is a drama lecturer at University of Malawi’s Chancellor College in Zomba, said the launch of a book by Max DC was one step forward to move from preaching and doing drama, taking his work ahead.

“When you are a writer you don’t die and I believe Max DC has brought out more. What Max DC has done in publishing a book is something that many people don’t do. People will actually meet him through his book and he will be reaching out to a wider audience,” Likongwe said.

The book was also auctioned during the launch and Max DC had a duty of signing autographs thereafter
