  4. Did Dereck miss some important cues?
  5. Are there any signs in Roger of an openness to the gospel?
  6. Assume you are Dereck's friend. What would you advise him to do now?
  7. Assume you are Roger. Why did you walk away at the end without responding? What are you thinking now?

  9. Would you suggest a different way for Dereck to open the conversation in the restaurant?
