Talking about your faith with nonbelievers can seem intimidating. How do you even start a conversation with somebody about Christianity? What happens if they start to ask questions you don’t know the answer to? These worries kept me from sharing my faith for a long time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, you’ve come to the right place! In this interview (linked below), I’m joined by Greg Koukl, author of “Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions.” His book lays out very clear and easy-to-follow tactics for sharing your faith with nonbelievers.
About Greg Koukl
Greg started out thinking he was too smart to become a Christian and ended up giving his life for the defense of the Christian faith. A central theme of Greg’s speaking and writing is that Christianity—if it’s properly understood and properly communicated—makes the most sense of the world as we find it.
Greg has spoken on more than 70 college and university campuses both in the U.S. and abroad and has hosted his own call-in radio show for 27 years advocating “Christianity worth thinking about.” He’s debated atheist Michael Shermer on national radio and Deepak Chopra on national television on Lee Strobel’s “Faith Under Fire.” An award-winning writer and best-selling author, Greg has written seven books, including The Story of Reality—How the World Began, How It Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between; Tactics—A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions, and Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air. Greg has been featured on Focus on the Family radio and has been interviewed for CBN and the BBC. He’s been quoted in Christianity Today, the U.S. News & World Report, and the L.A. Times.
Greg received his Masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, graduating with high honors, and his Masters in Christian Apologetics with honors from Simon Greenleaf University. He is an adjunct professor in Christian apologetics at Biola University.
Greg was our second interview for the day, and it was amazing! I loved every second of it. After the interview, I snagged a few portraits of him. Here are some of my favorite:
The total runtime for this interview is one hour and ten minutes! We talked a long time! Toward the end, we discuss ways in which Tactics differs from Street Epistemology.

Greg is one of my hero’s. My discussion with him, many years ago about divorce and re-marriage, was determinative in my decision to get married to a divorcee. May I suggest another guest for your program? Leray Heyne of Jesus Christ CEO’s Institute. http://www.jcceos.com
