There are two aspects of Christian defence. The first deals with content, offering specific responses to particular questions and challenges. The second deals with the techniques of using this information – tactics in defending the faith – and focuses on style, strategy and method.
Thinking Matters Tauranga is running a 6 week couse that covers the second aspect, giving a variety of powerful tactics and specific strategies and methods for sound reasoning, clear thinking, and a gracious defence of the Christian worldview.
You will learn specific skills to help you:
- Initiate conversations about God and faith effortlessly
- Present the truth clearly, cleverly and persuasively
- Expose faulty thinking in a gracious yet effective way
- Manoeuvre through mine fields and stop challengers in their tracks
This is based on the small group DVD curriculum by Greg Koukl from Stand to Reason that includes discussions, role play, memory tools, games, competitions, self-assessment quizzes, and recall exercises.
