Amid the levels of preparedness Christians can inhabit concerning evangelism, the conversational level is familiar to us all. We all speak to other people at some point and, after discerning the probable state of their soul, we can talk to them about the elements of salvation. But finding a natural place where that can take place is sometimes difficult, so to remedy that situation The God Conversation was written.
Learning how stories can be used as illustrations with spiritual applications can be a valuable resource in witnessing, and Moreland and Muehlhoff provide instruction as well as many of the stories that they use to make an impact on their audiences. The dozens of stories are short, well-written, and peppered throughout the text of the book, with frequent sidebars giving deeper understanding to the applications.

"This is a must-read for apologists and evangelistsreally, for all Christianswho want to be effective in communicating the gospel and good Christian thinking. Muehlhoff and Moreland are master communicators, and herein they reveal many of the secrets of their success. It is worth getting a group together in your church and studying this book. Everyone will be delighted, encouraged, and equipped."
" The God Conversation is one of my favorite apologetics books to recommend. There is value in this book for everyone. Experts will gain practical, memorable ways to communicate critical apologetics truths. And beginners will find helpful stories and illustrations to answer some of the biggest questions asked today. This book is a gem."
"A good story is like icing on the cake. It adds. Enhances. And flavors things up. Stories and illustrations do just that. They make the truth more desirable and digestible, not to mention enjoyable. That's what I love about Tim Muehlhoff and J. P. Moreland's book, The God Conversation. This is not just a book full of stories. Rather, it's a book aimed at making us storytellers. So sit back and relax. And enjoy the journey, as you are about to learn from two master storytellers the art of turning black and white to color."
"Most conversations, let alone ones about God, are either dull, single-sided or competing monologues full of smoke. It simply shouldn't be. Carrying on a vital, passionate, engaging conversation with another human being is an art that has been sufficiently lost that we need wisdom and perspective on how to engage well. The God Conversation is a gift to the church to invigorate our conversations with believers, seekers and unbelievers. J. P. and Tim walk with us through the use of story and authenticity with such masterful delight that one ends by sensing the authors have given us the very gift we are to give to others."
"If you are a headhunting evangelist or an intellectual who must have the last word, put this book down and go home. If you love your pre-Christian friends and want stimulating resources to engage them in meaningful spiritual dialogue on hard questions, J. P. and Tim are the mentors you seek."
"Today's culture is increasingly a story-based culture. As Tim and J. P. help to show, a story-based culture does not have to be a culture without truth. This book is an excellent tool to learn how to better communicate the great truths about God, the world, our faith and human nature through stories, modern-day parables, and by listening and teaching like Jesus. It is a must-read for all who want to help others find faith in Jesus Christ."
"I love stories and illustrations because of the impact they have had on me. If they have had a similar effect on you, this book is for you. It will reinforce your faith, hone your ability to share your relationship to Jesus Christ and delight your imagination. I cannot give it a higher recommendation."
"Moreland and Muehlhoff have written a unique and engaging book. The style is casual, yet the topics are treated with sufficient detail and nuance to be helpful. I commend The God Conversation to anyone seeking to discuss these matters in meaningful ways with family, friends and colleagues."
" The God Conversation offers user-friendly help in countering objections to the faith."
"Their stories, coupled with advice on constructive listening, will be helpful to any Christian who wants to move beyond ideas and arguments to communicate the gospel using a softer approach."
Carla5 Stars Out Of 5May 18, 2009CarlaThis book has helped me gain deeper understanding of God's love and the has enabled conversations with people that don't know God. With illustrations, I can ask questions to see what their truth is, and what it's based on.
