What Do I Say?

We live in a pluralistic world where a lot of people have worldviews other than ours. Some of these are more pervasive than others. There's a good chance, for example, that among those around you at work or school, there are Mormons or Muslims. You may also find yourself talking to someone with non-specific spiritual views they got from self-help books or other cultural fads. It's even possible that you know someone who is completely secular in his or her outlook, or who sees all religion as evil and is hostile to any sort of belief in God. How do we talk to them? What questions will they ask us and what questions should we ask them? We will explore these dominant ways of thinking in our culture and consider how we can engage people with these worldviews in meaningful discussions that can challenge their false assumptions and dispel misconceptions they have about the Bible and the Christian life.
