The common worldview among atheists has a name—actually, a couple of names. It is variously called “physicalism,” “materialism,” or “naturalism,” since the basic concept asserts that reality consists of nothing but the physical, material world governed by nothing but natural law.

However it’s characterized, it’s a significant obstacle keeping many skeptics from taking Christianity seriously. But fortunately, we Christians have a powerful ally in our engagements with atheists: reality is on our side. In this presentation, Greg offers a critique of naturalism, developing three solid lines of reasoning to show naturalism’s inadequacy and Christianity’s superior “explanatory power” as a reliable guide to understanding the world.
Many Christians don’t really know Jesus. We can’t get beyond a few cliches about Him. And because we don’t really know much about Jesus, we can’t encounter Him as He intended. We can’t experience the kind of transformation He offers. It’s time to reTHINK Jesus. In the Tactics Video Study, apologist and radio host Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to get in the driver’s seat in discussions about faith, keeping any conversation moving with thoughtful, artful tact. Readers will learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through potential minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables, and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus with conversations that look more like diplomacy than D-Day.

  • What unseen undercurrents are shaping twenty-first-century youth culture?
  • Why do so many kids struggle with identity?
  • How do we talk to kids about same-sex marriage and transgenderism?
  • How can leaders steer kids away from substance abuse and other addictions?
  • How can we ground students in the biblical story and empower them to change the world?

With biblical clarity, this is the practical go-to manual to equip kids to rise above the culture.
