Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be more issues of Conversations Journal?

There will be no more print or digital editions of Conversations Journal in the foreseeable future. It is with great appreciation that Richmont Graduate University marks Issue 14.2: Created To Create as the last print edition of the journal.

For more than a decade, Conversations has provided spiritually thoughtful and intellectually rich content to an audience seeking spiritual formation. Because of the support and encouragement of readers like you, Conversations has been able to publish important articles on issues ranging from contemplative prayer, to how transformation in Christ really happens, to the intersections of faithful formation and race. Richmont Graduate University and Conversations partner organizations will continue to teach and lead in the areas of spiritual formation.

Conversations Journal is also thrilled to be partnering with the Formatio line of InterVarsity Press to continue to produce high quality content on spiritual formation topics through Formatio’s monthly newsletter. If you are not already subscribed to the Conversations/Formatio newsletter, you can do so here.
