Publisher's Summary

Tactics provides the game plan for defending your faith and artfully communicating the truths of Christianity with confidence and grace.

This expanded anniversary edition of the classic book of Christian apologetics includes updates and expansions of existing tactics, as well as the addition of an all-new tactic and a chapter on Mini Tactics filled with simple maneuvers to aid in discussions.

In a culture increasingly indifferent or even hostile 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. 

In Tactics, 10th Anniversary Edition, Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to artfully regain control of conversations, keeping them moving forward in constructive ways through thoughtful diplomacy. You'll learn how to:

  • Meet challenges, questions, and provocations with poise and conviction.
  • Effortlessly start your own evangelical conversations.
  • Present the truth clearly, cleverly, and persuasively.
  • Graciously and effectively expose faulty thinking and logical fallacies.
  • Most important, you'll learn how to get people thinking seriously about Jesus.

Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl will not only walk you through effective arguments to defend why you believe what you believe, but he'll teach you methods for engaging in meaningful dialogue and debate.

Step-by-step, you'll learn the tactics of good persuasion and defense, how to identify the tactics of your opponent, and how to build your case, patiently and practically.

A must read for all Christians

This book is something that all Christians must read. We are all commanded to go out and share the Good News. Easier said than done especially in today’s growing hostile environment. This book provides excellent methods of how to lovingly yet effectively have conversations with others. Even if you feel shy, not knowledgeable enough about the Bible, or don’t know what to say, Koukl provides solid and practical methods that everyone can use right away.

Thoughts

Mr. Koukl reads his book like an empassioned proffessor or pastor. At times, I felt as though sitting in a room. The tactics in this book are clearly rooted in experience and will empower those wishing to be more proactive in discussing their convictions to do so without risking offenses (as much as reasonably possible). Furthermore, reading the book (or listening) prepares the mind toward readied defense. I highly recommend this book. It has encouraged me to take courses on STR.org

Required reading for all Christians

This book is well-constructed, easy to read, practical. It provides a solid plan for those who want to bring the message of Jesus of Nazareth to others and to strengthen one's convictions in doing so. As a Catholic, I am grateful for this work.

Excellent Book for Christians everywhere.

No matter how early or more developed you are in your faith (for me I’m relatively early) it’s a great book on how to communicate the Christian faith and defend against attacks while challenging the other person’s beliefs even if you know little to nothing about it. Especially me for me, I’m more of a listener than a reader. If I were to read this book, I would easy get distracted. It’s definitely a book you need to listen to, or read, multiple times to perfect the skills. However, it’s so basic that you could implement the techniques as soon as you finish listening or reading it. Great stuff.

If your like me and would like to share your faith but get intimidated and tongue tied when the opportunity arises then this is the perfect book. It gave me the tools I need to begin engaging in meaningful conversations with grace and confidence.
