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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eli | 1/1/2014

    " Outstanding book on how to implement the truth in conversations. A much needed strategic handbook for evangelists. Koukl's logic is refreshing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 12/31/2013

    " Most books on apologetics focus on the content of apologetics, making sure you know what you believe. The best books on apologetics I've encountered are those that focus on preparing your mind ahead of time for an encounter, which means more than just having the right things to say, it also means knowing how to say them. It's the difference between strategy and tactics, strategy looks at the world map and marks out the overall objective, tactics focus on the details of accomplishing a single mission. This book will help you accomplish your mission as a Christian, which may not be what you think it is. According to Koukl, the Christian's objective is not necessarily to convince a person first thing, but to "put a stone in their shoe", that is, leave them with a thought or a question that will gnaw at them over time. Koukl understands the subtle difficulties of trying convince a person and knows that one such convinced against their will is of their same old opinion still. We need to let people arrive at the truth in their own time, by the grace of God; God's timing. I loved this book and recommend two readings of it at least. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 12/31/2013

    " The author Greg Koukl has been on the forefront of Christian apologetics with his radio show, online writing and newsletter and has grown to become quite popular in Christian Evangelical circles today. This book is a great guide on the tactical methods of engaging someone who does not believe, a sub-genre among apologetics literature that Christian apologists can still work on. The book is wonderful in it's layout, and very logical. It makes a great introduction for those who are beginning to get their feet wet in defending their faith while at the same time provide good sharpening for seasoned apologists and perhaps new illustrations for one's encounter. Loved it and would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent | 12/21/2013

    " A very clear, well thought out plan for sharing your faith so that people might listen. I like his rule in regards to those who disagree with you in a discussion, "if you get mad, you lose." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 11/7/2013

    " Great information for discussing my faith in a non-confrontational way in a variety of circumstances. The author used many helpful examples of different situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Maddox | 11/7/2013

    " Tactics is a book that can be judged by its cover; a good handbook for head to head debate and winning arguments by exploiting an opponent's weaknesses. Caution - may lose friends and un-fluence people for Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 10/16/2013

    " Great book on practical apologetics "
