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.
As of December 2016, we are no longer publishing new issues of Conversations; however, you can find back issues for purchase and instant download in our store. If you’d like to receive fresh content on topics of spiritual formation, please sign up for our partner newsletter at ivpress.com/sign-up.
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.
- Small Groups
- Retreat Centers
- Spiritual Formation Training Programs
- Spiritual Directors
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.
