"Richard Peace has understood that spiritual interest in our culture is exploding, and every day Christians have an unprecedented opportunity to engage in authentic and deeply meaningful spiritual conversation with friends. Not only does he understand the culture and help us recover genuine spiritual conversation, but he does so in intensely practical ways." (Rick Richardson, author of Evangelism Outside the Box, and Associate Professor of Intercultural Studies, Wheaton College)
"A generation ago, Peter Berger's Social Construction of Reality observed that everyone is socialized into some specific worldview, and that in a pluralistic society--with many views of the world--the one intervention that most opens people out of their worldview and toward another is conversation with someone who lives by a contrasting worldview. At last, we have a book for Christians that is immersed in this reality and teaches Christians how to cooperate with it." (George G. Hunter, Distinguished Professor of Evangelization, School of World Mission and Evangelism, Asbury Theological Seminary)
"Richard Peace has done enormous service for the church by putting together his vast experience and storehouse of knowledge about how we can communicate Jesus Christ in the twenty-first century. As a pastor I am deeply appreciative. This will be a well-used resource by many small groups for many years to come." (Pete Scazzero, author of The Emotionally Healthy Church)
"Holy Conversation is fresh encouragement for the lost practice of 'talking about God in everyday life.' Richard Peace is an engaging academic thinker whose gift is to translate even this 'scary' topic into a language and experience that can be understood by all. Our churches are waiting for a book like this and the world is waiting for 'holy conversation.'" (David Schoen, Evangelism Minister and Team Leader, Local Church Ministries)
"Kudos to Richard Peace for his latest book. Dr. Peace has used his extensive experience as a teacher of evangelism and practical theologian, his expertise in small group dynamics, and his commitment to the art of interpersonal communication to provide a useful study guide to help Christians and secular people talk about the gospel in ways that are comfortable, easy, and mutually beneficial and enriching." (Richard Stoll Armstrong, Ashenfelter Professor of Ministry and Evangelism Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary)
"More and more Christians are realizing that what people outside the faith need is not (a) a sales pitch, (b) an argument, (c) a sermon or (d) an information dump. Instead, they need caring, thoughtful conversation partners. If you want to become one, then there's no better starting place than Holy Conversation." (Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christian)

The study questions will provide great conversation starters and the assignments between weeks will help group members grow confident in their ability to talk about their faith.
This book would be excellent for those who have never had to think through their testimony before, or have difficulty expressing the highs and lows of their faith Journey in Christ.
