I had the chance to read 2 great books this week on the subject of intelligently engaging people about issues of faith (the topic we're unpacking in our weekend series, "Deadliest Catch").
One was "Engage! Having Conversations about God" by Carmen Mayell. This one was a great resource on how to start a conversation with people from a host of different spiritual/worldview backgrounds, and seek to understand them, creating a dialogue (not a monologue) to eventually share the reasonableness of one's faith in God & Christ. Excellent resource
The other was "The End of Reason" by Ravi Zacharias. This was a response to Sam Harris' "The End of Faith". In the book, Ravi points out the inability to create a moral framework based on scientism/naturalism/self. Excellent food for thought here for anyone who holds up science as their one and only guiding principle…instead of recognizing how a Divine Creator (God) has revealed Himself through Creation, Science, Experience, and Jesus.
