My favorite journal on spiritual formation
Have just renewed my subscription to Conversations, a journal with Larry Crabb, David Benner and Gary Moon as the executive editors and Dallas Willard and Richard Foster as consultants. I read this journal when it comes cover to cover–it is that good. Actually, my other favorite is Journal of Spiritual Formation and Theology but that is another post since I need to renew it also.
On the conversations website, you can download for free the first couple of issues and a few other articles. Back issues are available for $10 in hard copy or in pdf. Check it out.
Here is what they say on their website
The purpose of Conversations is to provide spiritual accompaniment and honest dialogue for those who long for radical transformation in Christ. It stimulates hunger and illuminates the path by drawing on classical wisdom and practice, exploring the vital role of community, and illustrating the journey with realism and hope. Conversations is published semi-annually, in the spring and the fall.
The target audience for Conversations is purposefully broad—all thoughtful, seeking followers of Christ who long for a complete transformation of soul and full restoration of His image within. It is the intent of the editors to produce words that will inspire both those who seek help themselves and those who are helping others. The audience is also envisioned as being international, ecumenical, and interdenominational.
A large part of the vision for Conversations is the image of a table where representatives from each of the major tributaries of Christian spirituality can sit and talk openly and honestly about what matters most, authentic transformation into the life and character of Christ.
