Tactics by Greg Koukl
Tactics is a book about talking to people who see the world differently than our own. How do we have good conversations? What things get in the way of good conversations? What are tactics that we can use in conversation in order to interact with people on a deeper level?
The author does a great job of putting words to things I’ve been thinking for a long time: conversations are important and we should approach them with humility, reason, intentionality and above all a love and respect for the other person. While I sometimes find his tone and language a little bit grating, I think he has a lot of good things to say.
I think Tactics would be a great resource for anyone who wants to improve their ability to have meaningful conversations across worldview gaps. And yes, I think it’s ok if you don’t agree with him on some of his theological leanings that come through in this book. In fact, any disagreement might serve to further sharpen some of the lessons and recommended tactics in the book.
