Reviews:

That kind of format allows Q to include both Richard Land from the religious right and Jim Wallis from the religious left; both will...discuss areas of potential agreement. --USA Today

This sixth annual Q Conference..[is] a distinct kind of Christian conference, one that seeks a respectful, constructive conversation on a host of issues confronting the nation. - Huffington Post

It seems an impossible task: restore a 2,000-year religion so that it no longer rejects, no longer chases, but actually leads a modern, pluralistic culture running at the speed of Twitter. Q offers hope for Christianity's next one hundred years by profiling the next set of Christians transcending this epic challenge. -- Kevin Kelly Co-Founder Of Wired Magazine
