Guidance for those deep coffeehouse conversations about God
What do you say when someone raises tough objections to the Christian worldview, like
•Why not just look out for yourself?
•Isn't it okay to do whatever you want as long as you don't hurt anyone?
•Is it ever okay to lie?
•Aren't some people born gay?
•Do people really believe miracles happen?

In When God Goes to Starbucks, renowned apologetics expert Paul Copan tackles these and other vexing questions. He offers wise and relevant answers that will not only help you clarify your own beliefs but empower you to articulate those beliefs to others.
