The reader can feel at ease when engaging in discussions of tough topics, for the author provides point-blank advice and insightful suggestions on how to approach these subjects with candor, honesty, and genuine grace. Mittelberg takes his guide a step further by providing end-of-the-chapter discussion questions, making this format suitable for young believers in Bible studies, small groups, or apologetics classes.
Mittelberg assures readers that the point of this book is not to win arguments but to provide answers for people with genuine questions about Christianity and to lead people to Christ motivated by love. His book provides the wisdom on how to accomplish that. – Samantha Stevens, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
