In a world increasingly indifferent to Christian truth, followers of Christ need to be equipped to communicate with those who do not speak their language or accept their source of authority. Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to get in the driver’s seat, keeping any conversation moving with thoughtful, artful diplomacy. You’ll learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through the minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus. Soon, your conversations will look more like diplomacy than D-Day.Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl shows you how to:

Wise, God focused
Absolutely incredible. I'm a blue collar surrounded by unbelievers and i constantly get attacked by questions. This book gives tips and ways to break down what people try to "school me" with, and even better, it's focused on a Christian way, by not ending the conversation with the person offended. I want to spread the good news, this has helped so much :)
This book is an excellent starting point for anybody interested in Christian apologetics. Even for a non-Christian, it gives excellent tips for debating and lots of food for thought. It encourages analytical thinking and its principles can translate in many areas of our daily life. Not just apologetics.
This book is very well outlined. It takes you step by step through the thought process you should engage in and encourages you to start having conversations about the things that really matter.
The narrator did a great job. He kept you interested in the topic and it was easy to take notes to go back to.
I would strongly recommend this book to Christians and non-Christians alike. It is packed with good information and important steps to engage in healthy debates with others.
This is very well done. A must listen for anyone who wants to take Jesus last words to his followers to heart.
Me? I'm not who you think I think I am.
Koukl walks you through a deliberate process that will help you deal with many objections raised by atheists who, it would seem have not thought out their stance quite as we'll as they would like to have you believe. This book is a great place to start and surprisingly complete with many examples that will have you thinking more clearly than you have been. I highly reccomend this book as a resource for Christians.
A book of practical suggestions for how to approach people with the gospel in a tactful meaningful way. The tactics are mainly "common sense" but the kind of "common sense" that is difficult to manufacture on the spur of the moment when you are confronted with an unexpected opportunity to share your faith. I found the book helpful and I would highly recommend it.
The book gives practically examples of how to share your faith in the most non offensive way possible.
That its our job as Christians to plant seeds and not reap a harvest. God does the work, He will reap the harvest when its ready. We just need to be ready to do what ever part He puts in front of us to do. It takes the pressure off and helps us get in the game instead of running away from what we might think is an impossible conversation.
Informative, Educational, Perspective
I liked the story about the Witch from Wisconsin.
This book added tremendous perspective to sharing my faith. My pastor recommended it to me, this will be a book that I listen to (got the audio book) and read over and over again... more of a study - outstanding!
I've been raised in church and had my fair share of ridicule for my convictions and beliefs.
I realized it was the WAY I presented it which was making dozens of unsolicited claims, making it hard on myself. With the knowledge and tactics Greg suggests, I don't feel threatened or sensitive about the factual reasoning of my faith and can present it with wisdom knowing it's backed by logic, reason, and science!
God bless you, Greg
Polish your witnessing technique with these great lessons. Well read and researched with real life examples. One need not fear speaking up in the defense of the gospel with this book showing the way. Shows one how to answer critics of the faith and stand without being preachy or belligerent. Shows the way to be wise as serpents but harmless as doves.
I have only listened to 1 book more than once in my entire life, that book is the Bible. That is, until Tactics. I am now on my third listen, and I'm sure that I will listen again.
This book isn't about the reasons you believe, it simply shows how to share those reasons with an unbeliever. If you take the author's advice to heart, you will be a better ambassador for Christ.
