How to Talk to a Skeptic by Donald J. Johnson

If you feel uncomfortable talking with someone who is skeptical about your faith, "How to Talk to a Skeptic" by Donald J. Johnson may be a good place to start.

The author gives some sound advice about how to approach someone who doesn't believe the same way you do and to do it in a way that is informative and non-confrontational.  We are not supposed to be pushy sales-people when it comes to our faith, but instead to listen and find out the real reason the other person doesn't either accept our faith as valid or has questions.  How we handle those discussions can alienate or positively influence that other person.

Although I personally do not enjoy debating, I do feel this book gave practical instructions how to address another's concerns.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
