How to Explain Your Faith
Full Product Description
Is Christianity for those who can't get a life? What use is a dying God? Why is the Church so naff? If you've faced questions like these and felt tongue-tied, this is the book for you.
It will help you talk more confidently with your friends about the hope that keeps you going. And during those times when you find that you are questioning your faith, the answers and ideas here may help you come to a deeper understanding of what you really believe. The user-friendly format of each chapter begins with a 'What they say' section. The author then identifies the key issue, before suggesting (in reassuring detail) how you might respond.
All through the book you will find stories, as well as inspiring, poignant and witty quotes to work into your conversations whenever the opportunity may arise!

How To Explain Your FaithGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
However, Scripture exhorts us to "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." (1 Peter 3:15)
Many books have been written telling us how to do it and how easy it is whilst most of us find that it isn't. Here is yet another, but one with a new and creative approach.
John Pritchard has a long experience of ministry in the Anglican Church and focuses his book, not on the things we think we should be saying, but rather on the questions people are likely to ask and how we might respond.
The book is in three parts—Why Bother?, Why Believe?, and Why Get Involved? Each chapter is set out in an imaginative and accessible format, beginning with the things people say and going on to identify the key issue and the way one might respond. There are also thought provoking stories and some pithy quotes in each chapter.
At the end there is a section on how to use the book in a home group which is, perhaps, the value of the author's approach to the subject. Used individually it is obviously a worthwhile read, but used with a group it could help transform a church's outreach to the community it serves.
