The Gospel of John is sometimes known among Friends as "the Quaker Gospel," because it speaks to the Quaker concern for a here-and-now experience of eternal reality in Christ. Conversation with Christ explores this theme through thirteen conversations from the Fourth Gospel in which the history and mystery of Jesus are revealed. Each of these close readings is followed by examples of ways Quakers have grappled with It's message and by a guided meditation inviting readers to experience the form Christ takes in our lives.
The ebook version is available in mobi (for Kindle readers) and epub (for all other ereaders).
