"Let's talk about God." The very idea strikes fear into the hearts of many people; especially Christians who are inspired to share their Faith. Conversations on important subjects (religion, politics, social issues, etc) have a habit of ending poorly in large part because many people do not realize that conversation is an art form that requires practice and training. Most of us are horribly out of shape.
With a focus on discussing the Christian Faith with others, Arguing with Friends provides a broad overview of the proper motives for having discussions in the first place, an investigation of what success really looks like and guidelines for how to get there, a summary of the most common types of mistakes with practical tips for avoiding them and dealing with them when they happen. Links to a variety of educational resources are also provided.
Arguing with Friends specifically avoids being an answer book to the challenges to Christianity and the evidence for it. There are many excellent resources out there describing Christian Theology and Apologetics; Arguing with Friends helps the reader understand the art of dialogue and how, when and if they need to draw on all those resources. The strategies described in the book avoid fast facts and pat answers and encourages the reader to embrace an attitude of mutually respectful dialogue, conversational finesse and a long-term view of the search for Truth.
