"The complete Travel Guide isn't just a dry rehash of the faith, but seeks to take our experience-needy culture seriously. The guide takes travelers from the basic practices of faith, such as how to pray all the way through baptism, discovering and applying spiritual gifts, and how to create your own "rule" of spiritual life and holy habits. This set is a must for those churches and church leaders who are serious about helping the barely churched to connect with God, let alone to reaching the growing population of the never-churched."
Tim Carson, senior minister, Broadway Christian Church, Columbia, Missouri

If you are looking for a progressive alternative to the Alpha series, this is the one."
Martha Grace Reese, author of the
"Mainline church people are starting to share their faith and to invite friends to church. Now churches are in a quandary: What do we do with all these people who are showing up when they don't know about church? When they don't have a clue about the faith? Dawn Weaks' A Travel Guide to Christian Faith is a gift. Participants can walk step by step into a Christian faith life with leaders who have resources and confidence."

"Introducing the gospel is tricky business for most Christians. Often we end up as noisy gongs or clanging cymbals as we try to tell our story and the larger story of the Christian faith to our friends. Dawn Weaks' A Traveler's Guide to Christian Faith is so inviting, so intriguing, it can help Christians share the gospel as the good news that it is."

Nancy Ellett Allison, pastor, Holy Covenant United Church of Christ,
"Without the use of 'churchy' language Dawn Weaks offers both ancient resources (lectio divina, labyrinth prayer walks) and online sites for encouragement and challenge...She describes the church as 'the cracked mug that holds the drink of Christ' and helps each of us baristas fill the cups to brimming with a rich brew."
