For over fifty years James Sire, noted author and public defender of the Christian faith, has asked himself that question. Sometimes, of course, the arguments themselves just aren't that good. How can we make them better? Sometimes the problem has to do with us and not the arguments. Our arrogance, aggressiveness or cleverness gets in the way, or we misread our audience. Sometimes the problem lies with the hearers. Their worldview or moral blindness keeps them from hearing and understanding the truth.
With wisdom born of both formal and informal experience, Sire grapples with these issues and offers practical insight into making a more persuasive case for Christ.
This helpful book includes an annotated bibliography of resources for framing effective arguments.

It was perfect in my preparation for apologetics small group. I loved Sire's openness about mistakes he's made so we can avoid them! I reread the first section just to remind myself of the different categories of mistakes in arguments. Thanks, Sire!
Daniel5 Stars Out Of 5November 9, 2009DanielIf you are a high school student, you can use this book to help you defending you faith on many topics. But if you are a college student, you might think that its too superficial in addressing each subject, unless this is your first book about defending Christianity. BUT the book can be used for college student to know what is bad and good arguments, and how to think good arguments in dialog with non believers.And I like the way the book is written, because the writer know that is not about winning arguments alone, its also about showing Jesus in the arguments.Regards fromDaniel / College Student / Information Science
