I mentioned yesterday that the eBook for Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions is currently on sale for $3.99. I figure that “every good turn deserves another” so I’d like to feature Tactics as today’s giveaway prize.
If you’re unfamiliar with Greg Koukl and his organization Stand To Reason than I encourage you to check out their website. Here’s a quote from their mission statement which I think also holds true for the book, Tactics:
“Stand to Reason trains Christians to think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity and classical Christian values in the public square.”
When I read through Tactics for the first time a few years ago I remember that the “gracious defense” part is what impressed me the most. Some apologists can, frankly, be a bit overbearing. I’ve seen some attack non-believers with all the godly love and compassion of a hungry grizzly bear. In their gusto for defending the truth they end up verbally mauling the unconvinced. Tactics does not teach this approach to apologetics. Rather, it will help you think through how to discuss your faith with others in a way that respects the other person, makes logical sense, and fosters conversation about faith rather than igniting an argument.
For today’s giveaway please share a story about a time in which you’ve seen apologetics used in a gracious, helpful way.
As always, winners will be chosen randomly and announced on Friday. We’ll giveaway 3 copies. The more you comment and the more you tweet the link, the more chances you have to win.
