Format: Paperback
Worldview Conversations, the latest project from Stanley J. Ward, Bible Chairperson and Worldview Director for The Brook Hill School in Bullard, TX, is a welcome addition in Christian apologetics. Far too often, we learn how to defend the faith with reason, logic, and facts. Far too rarely do we learn how to do so under the precepts of I Peter 3:15, "with gentleness and respect" (ESV).

Soon-to-be-Doctor Ward gives us practical advice about holding conversations with non-Christians. His methods focus on understanding and compassion, not on "scoring points" or "winning" arguments. He deftly explains the important difference between the "conversion" approach and the "conversation" approach.

This volume is peppered with vignettes which illustrate his personal experiences developing and employing his method. These stories show real-world examples of success and failure of various approaches, and show us all how we can better view our friends and acquaintances.

I would suggest this should be on every Christian leader's bookshelf, especially those who deal with people between the ages of 12 and 25. I would further suggest that "Conversations" classes should be developed by local church congregations to help us all implement the wisdom which came from Stanley Ward's experiences. Lastly, I would suggest those who study this book also load the Napkin Theology videos, also from Dr. Ward, onto their mobile devices for quick and easy illustration when in discussion with non-Christians.

This text brings a different approach to discussing a biblical worldview. Having conversations about this topic allows for both parties to converse and share their individual understanding of the topic.

√ This book is a well-written, and well-edited discussion about sharing your faith, with particular emphasis on understanding the other person's worldview. Dr Ward realized early in his ministry that he was tending to see people as numbers: "I didn't really care about this person. I cared about my grade in an evangelism class." Over time, he realized his error. Now, Dr Ward focuses on having a conversation with others--listening to people, not trying to win some argument. The author strikes me as a very wise person in understanding this. I also have tended to try to "best" the opponent; boy is that getting it backwards! How many people are won to Christ by having them lose the argument?

Here are some of the highlights:

♦ "Focus on the conversation and let God take care of the conversion.
♦ "All of us have presuppositions..."
♦ "Share the truth gently."

Perhaps best of all, the author's emphasis on LOVE, as in I Corinthians 13: "Love promotes conversation, because it is patient, kind, honors others without drawing attention to self..."

√ All in all, an excellent book for the Christians wanting to share their faith. Reading a well-written book is always a pleasure; I find it annoying when I have to advise a writer how to write proper English. I also appreciate the fact that the links in the Table of Contents actually work properly. This might seem like an obvious thing that would always be done right, but not so!

♫ A Review by Chris Lawson

For another great book on outreach, this is probably my all-time favorite Christian book. I found out about this, because they were using it at Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif: Just Walk Across the Room: Simple Steps Pointing People to Faith.

Note: I do not know the author of this book, and no one requested I write this review.
