THE CONVERSATION: An Intimate Journal of the Emmaus

 The Conversation: An Intimate Journal of the Emmaus Encounter is a unique and riveting reconstruction from the unnamed disciple’s account found in Luke 24 regarding his journey with Cleopas on the road to Emmaus after witnessing Jesus’s crucifixion and burial, along with hearing claims of His empty tomb. Suddenly, a Stranger begins walking with them. With their eyes “prevented” from recognizing Him as the risen Lord Jesus Christ—Yeshua the Messiah, their new, wise Traveling Companion correlates the Old Covenant Scriptures, by way of Moses and the prophets, with what they witnessed.

This “journal” is your opportunity to eavesdrop and learn what that conversation might have been like, as pertinent prophecies unfold revealing evidence that the Messiah’s suffering, death, burial, and resurrection were, in fact, specifically foretold.

“The Conversation brings to life that famous encounter between the two disciples and our Lord Jesus on the road to Emmaus. While it is based in part on an imaginative reconstruction, it is filled with the throbbing pulse of the excitement of the sensational impact that our Lord’s resurrection should have on all of our lives.”

DR. WALTER C. KAISER, JR., President Emeritus

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“This little book does a big thing. It takes the age-old truths of the prophetic accuracy of the Bible and communicates it in an appealing literary format. In so doing, it portrays one of the great apologetic tools of the Christian faith in an engaging and readable  form.”

DR. NORMAN GEISLER, Distinguished Professor of Apologetics

Veritas Evangelical Seminary

“I found The Conversation remarkable and riveting. (Judy Salisbury) did a fantastic job with the Scriptures, networking them all together with profound significance—the mark of a seasoned apologist. The book, as a whole, is fascinating, captivating, eye-opening, and doctrinally sound.”


International Christian Speaker Author

“An interesting story, though fictional, yet The Conversation rings with possibility. I pray that it will have a wide reading and that many will come to believe that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel.”

DR. DAVID HOCKING, Founder, Hope for Today

All fifty convicting devotions draw from a rich scriptural context, concluding with a practical, achievable call to action, plus journaling space for personal reflection.

"Not just another devotional; Judy captures the very essence of how Scripture applies to our everyday life—past, present, and future."

—Pastor Denny Martinez, Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel, Woodland WA

"Judy Salisbury, in this book, provides an oasis for ministry leader or lay Christian alike. She interweaves stories, Scripture, theology, and applicable lessons that we can use in our lives. I encourage the reader to take time as they read and drink from the fountain of God's Word here in her 50 days of refreshing. Take time to meditate upon what she is saying and write out the "My Task/Challenge" and "My Outcome/Results" at the end of each day's connection with God. I believe that you will grow in a closer relationship and understanding of God and His Word."

Have you ever considered your impact for eternity? Do you have a desire to offer common sense answers to spiritual and practical concerns of others, and yet feel ill-equipped to do so? When the storms of life come, does your faith tend to waver? Do you wish you had answers to nagging questions you have yet to articulate or investigate?

If you have the desire to become better equipped to reach others for the lost or to strengthen your faith, Judy Salisbury’s guide—written specifically to meet the needs of Christian women today—offers you a safe, practical, and approachable place to start. In her lively, straightforward style, Salisbury covers such issues as:

Does God exist? Can I trust the Bible?Does Christianity oppress women?Can we know truth?Why would God allow evil and suffering?Was Jesus God and did He really rise from the dead?How does or should my faith guide my life?
"Absorbing, instructional, insightful. Judy Salisbury's book Divine Appointments embodies examples of truly speaking the truth in love. The stories she weaves together provide perfect examples of how to relate to others through conversational evangelism... Divine Appointments is an apt companion to any apologetics book, showing how to put principles into practice. It's an apologetics manual wrapped in a warm blanket. Snuggle up with it."

    —Julie Loos, Director, Ratio Christi Boosters 

From the author of the first book for women on Christian Apologetics comes, Divine Appointments: Spontaneous Conversations on Matters of the Heart, Soul, and Mind. This engaging, informative resource highlights six unique conversations with six women who pose the most popular and challenging objections to Christianity that many believers encounter today. Judy Salisbury offers nearly 100 practical and life-changing responses, presented in a real-life conversational format, to help move Mrs. McBride, Svetlana, Suzanne, Gertie, Clarice, and Glayda to conversion or further investigation.
