Summary

This expanded anniversary edition includes updates and expansions of existing tactics as well as the addition of an all-new tactic and a chapter on Mini Tactics filled with simple maneuvers to aid in discussions.

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 Tactics, 10th Anniversary Edition, Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to artfully regain control of conversations, keeping them moving forward in constructive ways through thoughtful diplomacy. You'll learn how to stop challengers in their tracks and how to turn the tables on questions or provocative statements. Most important, you'll learn how to get people thinking about Jesus. Tactics provides the game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace.

Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl shows listeners 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

Great Clear Ideas

I will be re-listening to this many times. I found it extremely concise, and to the point, and I think if a person writes notes as they go along, will make it easier next time round. I pray that I can get my muddled mind around things because I am truly desperate to spread the Word, and to save at least, some souls.

Awesome Book

I could feel the Holy Spirit speaking to me and through the author’s of this book. My struggle as a God created dyslexic person often leaves me struggling to quote scriptures as many of my fellow Christians do. Yet I feel empowered with words and ways to express my conviction while spreading Jesus message through the guidance found in this book. Please pray for me that I may be able to speak convincing words of wisdom to the atheist I am speaking too. More prayer means more power. I will in turn do the same for all those who venture to listen or read this book.

A great update to a great book.

In this 10th anniversary edition of tactics Greg Koukl updates his Previous book with several new tactics, and updates to several old tactics. This book was great before the update and it’s even better now. In this book Greg teaches you how to share your Christian convictions in a way where you come across with diplomacy rather than having the conversation turned into a fight.

The only fault I find is that the spoken material does not exactly match Word for Word the printed material. I’m not sure whether Greg was reading from a version of the book that was not finalized or what. This is a minor issue. For the most part he matches the book. A second tiny fault is if you get the Kindle edition whispersink is out of sync by about two seconds.

In spite of these two minor flaws this is a great book that I highly recommend to all Christians and should be required reading for all Christian leaders.

this is a must read for a serious Christian

if you think what you believe is exportable but have not been as effective in communicating it to your unbelieving friends and acquaintances you will love this book. it will give you some simple tools to use to keep you in the driver's seat as you communicate with those who misunderstand the real message of Christ. You don't have to end every conversation at the foot of the cross. sometimes the most effective thing you can do is put a stone in his shoe as he walks away that allows the Holy Spirit to better do His work that only He can do. This book will show you how.
