This book recaptures the real art of conversation, drawing on the example of Jesus, structured for use during Lent by both individuals and groups. The modern email and sound-bite culture is threatening the art of good conversation. Encounters between people are frequently brief, with minimal dialogue and superficial engagement. Yet conversation is communication. Without it, people lose contact, stop understanding one another, become isolated. Peter Shaw challenges his readers to rediscover the art of conversation by learning from the example of Jesus. Engaging, stimulating and instructive, good conversation can be more than just enjoyable: it can have far-reaching effects. Divided into seven chapters, the book is intended for use during Lent although is not restricted to this. Eminently practical, it can be used by both individuals and in groups.
