This book recounts the experience of a church that used appreciative inquiry to harness their energies, shift their congregational conversations, and renew their sense of hope. Branson first leads readers through the foundations of appreciative inquiry and bracingly explores biblical texts for understanding the practice in a faith context. He then outlines and illustrates a four-step process-Initiate, Inquire, Imagine, Innovate-that creatively employs constructive conversations and questions to evoke storytelling and spur imaginations.
