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: – Initiate conversations effortlessly – Present the truth clearly, cleverly, and persuasively – Graciously and effectively expose faulty thinking – Skillfully manage the details of dialogue – Maintain an engaging, disarming style even under attack Tactics provides the game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace.
I liked the part where it talked about the modest goal of conversation. When engaging in a spiritual conversation, we often go in trying to win the game. But the goal should be to ‘get on base’, place a stone in someone’s shoe so that he continues to think about the conversation. I found this book to be practical and helpful, and indeed it was helpful to read before our vision trip.

It’s kind of like NL and AL approaches to baseball. I like it!
