Summary

The practice of offering reasons for the Christian faith, or apologetics, strikes many unbelievers today as offensive, an attempt to proselytize, while Christians themselves often view apologetics as unsophisticated or even faith-undermining. After all, shouldn't a believer focus on presenting the gospel rather than attempting to argue people to belief?

In Telling a Better Story, author Joshua Chatraw presents a new and better way to do apologetics, an inside-out approach that is attuned to our late-modern moment and respectful of unbelievers, all the while remaining focused on Jesus. With chapters on cultural understanding, dealing with the difficult issues, and presenting Jesus in a holistic, contextual manner, Telling a Better Story offers a road map to effective apologetics both for experienced apologists and those new to sharing their faith with others.

What is your story? The gospel is a story that is

Chatraw, gives a different way of sharing the story of the gospel in this book, that is a very useful tool.The first couple of chapters I felt dragged a bit for him to finally get to the point. However the last 4 chapters were excellent. How do you better understanding where people are coming from? Their backgrounds, experiences and lifestyle all play huge key into sharing the gospel... in the story (The gospel) that can be reflective in their own life. That forgiveness, self-sacrifice, mercy and Justice, all coincide together. Might read again because there is much I wish to break down and digest after reading this book.
