On Guard by William Lane Craig

There are two basic sides to evangelism.

1.  Relationship – introducing people to God as a person.

2.  Logic – convince people that God is the right answer, that He is real and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

On Guard takes the latter approach.  Here is a clip from their press release:

“American society has already become post-Christian,” writes Dr. Craig. “Belief in a sort of generic God is still the norm, but belief in Jesus Christ is now politically incorrect.” Packed with stories of Dr. Craig’s encounters with religious skeptics, On Guard provides more than philosophical arguments.  It relates real life experiences that illustrate the themes of our current culture. Dr. Craig maintains: “If the Gospel is to be heard as an intellectually viable option for thinking men and women today, then it’s vital that we as Christians try to shape American culture in such a way that Christian belief cannot be dismissed as mere superstition.”

Here are the people I think will like this book:

  1. College students
  2. People who  ask deep questions and want to think through the complex.
  3. People who like logic – Craig likes logic, and uses this logical approach to convincing people of God and His approach.

Do you want to be able to talk with conviction and knowledge when you discuss God with those God brings your way?
