Talking about faith with friends and family members can be a daunting prospect. What do you say if they have questions you can’t answer or if they’re outright hostile toward God?
Actually, you don’t have to have all the right answers, just the right questions–and a willingness to listen. As trust and understanding grow, the door to fruitful dialogue will open.
How to Talk to a Skeptic shows you how to:
· Ask probing questions and avoid being on the defensive in spiritual conversations.
· Tell God’s story of the world in a winsome and easily understood way.
· Gently respond to the most common misunderstandings skeptics have about God.
Here’s a natural, relational approach to evangelism and a proven way to reach out to an unbelieving world.

Sometimes sharing your faith can be discouraging…especially when so many are so slow to believe.
How do you handle those tough, awkward situations?
How do you talk about something you are so passionate about when faced with criticism?
Thankfully, there is help! Donald J Johnson’s book “How to Talk to a Skeptic” is a must-read for anyone wanting to share their faith, but who may be a little unsure of how to go about it.
In the first section, Johnson tells us how to engage in conversations that will ultimately turn to matters of faith…without sounding like a sales pitch.
I love that the author also tackles the “burden of proof” factor, as well.
One of the biggest obstacles in sharing our faith is often fear that we don’t have all the answers, or won’t know what to say…rest easy, Johnson addresses these and more in this book!
Everything from not losing your cool, not turning a concerned conversation into an argument, what doubters really need to know…this book has it all!
This is definitely one of those books you will want to keep in your library and refer to again and again.
