Item Description...
Amid the levels of preparedness Christians can inhabit concerning evangelism, the conversational level is familiar to us all. We all speak to other people at some point and, after discerning the probable state of their soul, we can talk to them about the elements of salvation. But finding a natural place where that can take place is sometimes difficult, so to rememdy that situation The God Conversation was written. Learning how stories can be used as illustrations with spiritual applications can be a valuable resource in witnessing, and Moreland and Muehlhoff provide instruction as well as many of the stories that they use to make an impact on their audiences. The dozens of stories are short, well-written, and peppered throughout the text of the book, with frequent sidebars giving deeper understanding to the applications.

Publishers Description
Think of It This Way . . . Our beliefs are challenged from many directions. Every day it seems more difficult to explain to our friends, families and neighbors what we believe and why. When our ideas and arguments fail to persuade them, what then? Is there another approach we can take? In The God Conversation veteran apologists and communicators J. P. Moreland and Tim Muehlhoff say that often the best way to win over others is with a good story. Stories have the ability to get behind our preconceptions and defenses. They can connect both emotionally and intellectually, appealing to the whole person rather than just to the mind. How do we defend belief in a good God in the face of terrorist attacks or natural disasters? What can we say to show we are not arrogant to believe that Jesus is the only way with so many sincere people following other world religions? What if they think we are naive to say Jesus actually rose from the dead? And when they seem confident in their right to choose their own ethical stances, how can we help them appreciate the value of a universal standard of right and wrong found in the Bible? The authors offer a wealth of penetrating illustrations, examples and quotes that respond to these issues and more. In these pages they enhance the logic and evidence found in other books defending the faith, with things that your friends, relatives or coworkers will ponder long after a conversation is over. Here is sound, empathetic coaching for those of us who long to communicate our faith more effectively.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must Read for the Person Exploring Their Faith  Feb 10, 2010
The writing style is conversational and it hits the nail right on the head. The subject matter is current and relevant. I've read a lot of faith-based books and this one seems very understandable to any type of reader, regaurdless of previous knowledge on the subjects.
Read this book!!  Sep 1, 2009
I took a class from one of the authors of this book (Muehlhoff) and God Coversation was one of the required books for the course. I found it to be a very good read. It was interesting, informative, and very well written and well put together. This is one book that I would highly recommend to anyone!!
A powertool for apologists and Christians seeking to share their faith  Mar 20, 2009
I love apologetics. I love the syllogisms, the debates, the verbal combat. I do an apologetics podcast titled, Christian with a Brain. I love to read the works of Plantinga, Craig, Willard and others. But there is one thing I have found as I have actually functioned as an apologist: syllogisms rarely lead others to salvation.

We sometimes think that all atheists are mini Richard Dawkinses or Sam Harrises. But most of the atheists that you meet in life are not going to break your logic down into symbolic form. That is where this book is so powerful. It is literally a guidebook for using the power of story and conversation to lead non-believers to Jesus. It is not formulaic or overly simplistic. It is just full of powerful illustrations and plain talk about the bigger questions of faith.

If you are looking for logic-based argumentation, I recommend Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview by Moreland and William Lane Craig. But if you recognize that story is your most powerful tool in sharing the Good News and defending the faith, this is an excellent place to start. It was a valuable resource for one of the episodes of my podcast titled, Why Science Will Always Finish Second.

It is wise and powerful to master all of the arguments, but we need to be able to harness the power of story to reveal our Lord, and this book is a tremendous help.
Good discussion starter  Sep 30, 2008
This is a practical book that gives good pointers on how to address issues that people have with God and Christianity. It gives a lot of specifics and also has sidebars that allow you to go deeper yet. It deals with: pain in the world, disasters (which I wish they would have given better reasons), Jesus' resurrection, etc. I liked the conversational style of the book.
Amazon shopping  Aug 2, 2008
I'm thinking I will shop other sites before purchasing from this site. Turn around time is so slow, items back ordered, out of stock even when web site says item is in stock. This has happened one too many times when I order from this site and that has been several times.
Huge selection, poor service.
