Tactics Video Study: A Guide to Effectively Discussing Your Christian Convictions

Tactics Video Study: A Guide to Effectively Discussing Your Christian Convictions

by Gregory Koukl

Multimedia(DVD - NTSC)



In a world increasingly indifferent to Christian truth, followers of Christ need to be equipped to communicate with those who do not speak their language or accept their source of authority.

In the Tactics Video Study, apologist and radio host Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to get in the driver’s seat in discussions about faith, keeping any conversation moving with thoughtful, artful tact. Readers will learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through potential minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables, and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus with conversations that look more like diplomacy than D-Day.

Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl demonstrates how to:

  • Initiate conversations effortlessly
  • Present the truth clearly, cleverly, and persuasively
  • Graciously and effectively expose faulty thinking
  • Skillfully manage the details of dialogue
  • Maintain an engaging, disarming style even under attack

Designed to be used alongside the Tactics Study Guide, the Tactics Video Study provides a game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace.
