About the Author
David Geisler (ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary, DMin in apologetics, Southern Evangelical Seminary) has been involved in church and parachurch college ministry for more than 25 years both in the East and the West. He is an internationally recognized speaker and the founder and president of Meekness and Truth Ministries (Charlotte, NC), which provides valuable tools to aid missionaries in more effectively reaching the skeptics, pluralists, and postmodernists of our day.
Norman Geisler is author or coauthor of more than 80 books and hundreds of articles. He has taught at the university and graduate level for nearly 50 years and has spoken or debated in all 50 states and in 25 countries. He holds a PhD in philosophy from Loyola University and is the chancellor and distinguished professor of theology and apologetics at Veritas Evangelical Seminary in southern California (www.VeritasSeminary.com).

That he would write a book of such sensibilities was a great and pleasant surprise. Perhaps it's the influence of David, but this book brings some serious intellectual firepower to everyday interpersonal interactions.
The Geislers emphasize the need to listen carefully to what people are saying, and rather than blast away with the right answer, ask clarifying questions. "Help me understand..." can be a disarming way of starting a conversation. The Geislers help equip the Christian in understanding the type of questions to ask that will reveal some of the big problems in the postmodern worldview.
Sometimes evangelism is a process. This book is very helpful in enabling believers to shepherd that process along...to help someone "move one step closer to Christ."
