5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Way to Keep Communication Going in a Difficult Situation 17 août 2016
Par Timothy Fish - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a student in high school I learned that it isn’t good to tell a teacher that she is wrong, even when you know the subject better than she does. It is better to ask a question and to shape that question in such a way that the teacher will realize her mistake while attempting to answer the question. I never formalized that method, but Gregory Koukl does in his book Tactics. But rather than addressing how not to offend someone who has the ability to influence your grade, Koukl approaches this from the standpoint of how to share your faith. These days, we encounter many people who are offended by Christian beliefs. The tactics Koukl outlines in his book can help us to reduce the conflict and help them discover the truth of what we are saying for themselves. And even if they don’t, perhaps the people listening will.
The meat of the book is three questions that we can ask that will cause people to consider what they are saying. Often, people are just repeating things that other people have said, without giving any thought to the validity of the argument. These three questions may cause the person to see the weakness in their argument.
• What do you mean by that?
• How did you come to that conclusion?
• Have you ever considered?
The great thing about these questions is that they aren’t limited to a adversarial situation. You might be talking to a close friend and hear them say something that doesn’t sound quite right. “What do you mean by that?” Your child might say something like, “I don’t think I should play with Jane anymore.” You might ask, “How did you come to that conclusion?” or simply, “Why?”
One of the things that Koukl brings out about asking questions is that you can direct the conversation without taking sides on an issue. You don’t even have to be certain of what the right answer is. Perhaps, once you discover what the other person is saying and why they are saying it, you will agree with them. But when they are wrong, those questions may help them to see where they went wrong.
This is the best book on sharing your faith that I’ve read. Unlike other books that tell you what to say about the gospel, this book focuses more on the practical ways we can improve communication. While there are a few things I’m not sure I agree with him on, this is a book that every Christian who wishes to improve communication with non-believers should read. But the people who will benefit the most are the people in leadership positions who must deal with people who disagree with them. I can see where a teacher of a small group might put this to use if there is a student who insists on pushing strange doctrine during class. Rather than getting into an argument that disturbs the other class members, one could ask questions of the person and bring them around, or at least, make the other students aware that the person’s ideas are not correct.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Columbo Apologetics 29 mars 2016
Par Brandon Lucas - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Synopsis: This book may not be what you would initially expect from one filed under the category of Apologetics. The author doesn't set out to pen an in-depth A to Z defense of the Christian faith as so many volumes before have already accomplished in staggering detail. No, Gregory Koukl is determined to help Christians be wise as serpents and harmless as doves when confronted with challenges to their faith. Hence the title, Tactics.

Koukl differentiates between strategy and tactics when it comes to defending the Christian faith. Strategy concerns the overall big picture of Apologetics. This panoramic vista consists in comprehensive knowledge of every aspect of Christianity. This insight can then be utilized in striking against all the Satanic powers that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God via both offensive and defensive attacks.

This is all well and good, for there are many volumes available that do just that. However, the author deliberately does not broach this broad subject matter. Instead he engages in the tactics needed in order to get to the end goal of proving Christianity and debunking all arguments against it.

Koukl writes, "A sharp lawyer needs more than facts to make his case in court. He needs to know how to use his knowledge well. In the same way, we need a plan to artfully manage the details of dialogues we have with others. This is where tactics come in."

Tactics, therefore in Christian Apologetics refers to the way we communicate our knowledge of the faith in order to disarm our opponents' arguments.

Koukl has several valuable methods of dialoging with our opponents. I'll outline some of these below:

The Columbo method - named in honor of the television detective from a bygone era. This tactic instructs us that when someone disputes your worldview don't respond with a diatribe defending your view, simply ask questions.

Koukl writes, "The key to the Columbo tactic is to go on the offensive in an inoffensive way by using carefully selected questions to productively advance the conversation. Simply put, never make a statement, at least not at first, when a question will do the job."

The Columbo method has three steps. Step one is to gain information. This is done by asking clarifying questions, such as 'What do you mean by that?"

Step two attempts to reverse the burden of proof. Again, Koukl, "In any dispute, the person who advances an opinion, claim, or point of view has the job of defending it. It's not your duty to prove him wrong. It's his duty to prove himself right."

The related question to toss into the dialog would be, "How did you come to that conclusion?"

Step three has us ask leading questions to aid us in steering the conversation in the direction we desire it to go. A carefully worded leading question will help you take charge of the situation instead of letting the critic take it to unholy places. To launch these tactical verbal missiles a person will need two things: knowledge of the subject matter and a plan of attack.

Other methods include the suicide tactic. Many ideologies are self-refuting. For example the statement "There is no absolute truth" cannot possibly be true if absolute truth doesn't exist. Using the Columbo questions this falsehood can quickly be exposed.

The author explores several other methods in succeeding chapters. As well, he also dedicates a couple of chapters guiding readers on how to deal with overbearing personalities and pseudo academic arguments.

Recommendations: I admit, I profited greatly from this little book. it wasn't what I expected, but that ended up being beneficial. If I had first read a massive tome on Apologetics my arsenal would have been well stocked yet I'd have been woefully under-trained on how to actually fire any of my weapons. Tactics teaches the fundamentals of maneuvering a conversational obstacle course. It does it in a winsome manner, peppered with personal experiences from Koukl's many encounters. I especially benefited from the chapter on taking the roof off. It contained many arguments that critics use and how to dismantle them quickly and effectively. It is a section I will commit to memory and return to often.

I think this book should be required reading for every Christian. Much like I think Logic 101 should be a core class for all high school students. The world of ideas is becoming increasingly hostile to Christian beliefs. We should always stand ready with a reason for the hope that we have in Christ Jesus. Tactics does an excellent job of starting us done the daunting path of Christian Apologetics.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How To Winsomely Build Bridges With Non-Believers 17 janvier 2017
Par Dr. David P. Craig - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Living in one of the least churched areas in the USA (Bay Area, Northern California) I am always looking for better ways to build bridges with non-believers. I have found that many of the old ways I was trained in (e.g., 4 spiritual laws, and various tracts) assume a common world-view. However, we aren't "in Kansas" anymore as the saying goes. Times have changed and are ever changing rapidly. In our cultural climate we can either retreat or engage. Tactics is a tool for those who wish to engage - and a very helpful tool it is indeed.

What I love about this book is that it helps Christians (of all stripes) engage non-believers in a very simple manner. Koukl helps you become a better engager by looking for opportunities, asking good questions, and listening well so as to build bridges toward understanding, and ultimately truth. All truth is God's truth and Koukl gives examples of how to arrive at moral truth, philosophical truth, scientific truth, and religious truth.

One of the strategies Koukl highlights in his book is letting the other person defeat their own view by asking them to share what they believe. If what the person believes is false it will manifest itself as false eventually through our questioning (essentially they end up shooting themselves in the foot). At this point they may want to consider the truth claims of the Christian worldview. He gives many examples of how to do this from his own experiences in conversations and debates with non-believers.

One of the key illustrations used over and over again in the book is that of the beloved Lieutenant Columbo (the homicide detective played by actor Peter Falk). Columbo would always solve murder cases by asking good questions, being a good listener, and controlling each case (usually unbeknownst to the murderer) until the case was solved. Koukl uses a plethora of examples to drive the "Columbo method" home.

Koukl masterfully weaves case scenarios throughout the book and demonstrates how we can utilize the tactical methods of Columbo to gain a hearing and build bridges with anyone. I highly recommend this book for Christians who are interested in evangelism and apologetics. It's also filled with ethical examples as well. I will continue to personally use principles from this book and train those I disciple to do likewise. Koukl has blessed followers of Christ with a wonderful resource to help all believers be better equipped to strategically and effectively influence those of differing views to consider the cogency of the Christian Worldview.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good one 3 août 2012
Par Aletheuo - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I liked this book. It is short and to the point. It has some excellent ideas for engaging in conversation with people in a logical manner. However, I'm giving it four stars for a few minor errors and/or disagreements that I have with the author.

1. The author claims that God must takes sides and shares a very short reasoning dialogue that could easily lead one to believe that he is correct. However, I suggest that the author presents a false dichotomy. The author believes that you must believe that God either takes one side or the other of two sides. However, this is not necessarily true. There could be a third choice and that is that he chooses neither side. In other words, as Christians, we are to move to God's side. He is not required to be on our side.

2. On page 170, the author defines science as being a methodology. I must admit that this is the definition rendered in modern dictionaries. However, I submit that the word itself has been hijacked. It really means "knowledge" and was coined as such. Furthermore, the author argues that "science insists..." and "Modern science does not conclude..." Sorry to say, but science doesn't conclude or insist anything. People do that. Nevertheless, the general arguments made in this section are sound.

3. The author states on page 185 that "all current English translations of the Bible start with manuscripts written in the original language - Greek..." This is not exactly correct. Most modern translations are based on the United Bible Societies revised version of the Greek text originated by the unregenerate Brooke Westcott, Fenton Hort and others and much of it was based on corrupt Greek manuscripts from the 4th century A.D. and later. There are other Greek texts and one in particular that is more trustworthy than these. It is known today as the Textus Receptus. Before it was known as the TR it was just the "real" new Testament to the true Christians. It traces its roots to the first century A.D.

Lastly, I would have appreciated it more if the author had injected a suggestion for more reliance on the Holy Spirit during one's conversations. He did suggest this at least once, but it should have been sprinkled throughout the book and emphasized more than it was. Without regard to these "complaints," I liked the book and I do recommend it.

"This book changed my life and my relationships in a very specific way. It encourages asking clarifying questions. One cannot do that without listening. Therefore, by example, it taught me to LISTEN to other people's WORDS, rather than just waiting for my turn to talk. I am sure that ALL of us could benefit by listening more and talking less. The saying goes, God gave us two ears and one mouth. Perhaps we should use them accordingly." -Darren Williams, Ratio Christi at SHSU Chapter Director
