A Theology of Conversation – A Reading List

This week, I’ve been revising the theology chapter of my forthcoming book on conversation, HOW THE BODY OF CHRIST TALKS (Brazos Press, 2019), and getting ready for some upcoming events that I will be doing on conversation.

 

Here’s a list of books that have played a vital role in shaping the theology of my work on conversation.

Richard Foster

 

In an age like the present when conversation is nearly impossible, it is helpful for churches to think of it as a corporate discipline that we undertake together. We need forgiving spaces in which to PRACTICE conversation. Foster’s exploration in the latter chapters of this classic of corporate spiritual disciplines can provide a framework for how we think about and devote ourselves to the practice of conversation.
