Coffee Shop Conversations: Making the Most of Spiritual Small Talk
by Dale and Jonalyn Fincher
A 2008 study released by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life notes that the number of people creating their own interpretations of faith and culture is growing. Seems like there are as many different styles of faith as ways to order your latte. How does a Christian have normal conversations about Jesus without accidentally sounding offensive, bigoted or intolerant? You will find the tools you need for meaningful, tolerant, and respectful conversations about your faith with friends who donÕt share your views. Forget the Òfire and brimstoneÓ approach and the awkward insistence to get other people Òsaved.Ó You will discover how to be yourself without alienating others. YouÕll learn: How to walk in another personÕs shoes. Ways to gently invite others to share. The buzz words that will stop a conversation cold. How to navigate todayÕs hot-topics.
