Book Description

"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read February 27, 2013
By Graceus
Format:Paperback
This book is a "What to expect when having a conversation about beliefs and how to prepare and respond while keeping your friends" type of book. The author, Paul Buller starts off the first three stations showing us what is necessary to have good, logical conversations; station 4-6 discusses knowing your own beliefs and why you hold them (and he gives examples of topics Christians should be knowledgeable of); stations 5-7 discusses strategies that everyone should know for effective conversations; station 8-11 points out general mistakes, common fallacies, and rhetorical tactics to avoid; station 12-14 discusses ineffective conversations, dealing with people, making mistakes; stations 15-17 is about general philosophy and worldviews, biblical reliability, Christian theology, and study tips.

I think this is a book every Christian who wants to be more vocal about their beliefs with others who hold opposite beliefs should read. The author reveals mistakes he's made in the past when he first started, and I believe these are common mistakes that others make as well. There is more to just knowing what we believe and how to defend it. Being able to converse with gentleness and respect with others is also necessary for the Christian because it shows Christ in us, and it is a more effective way to reach others.

The author is very basic but concise in his delivery of what constitutes an effective argument for christianity--his summary of websites at the end is excellent.Nice to have another book on this topic from a fellow Canadian.
