Engaging the Closed Minded


Kregel 1999

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


You know them: friends and coworkers, family members you love. They aren't interested in the Bible or Jesus. Period.

Author Dan Story tackles one of the most difficult problems you may ever face in sharing your faith—engaging minds that are tightly closed against the good news of Jesus Christ. Some people may talk about religion—for the sake of a good argument—but they don't really listen to what you are saying with an open mind.

Tough situations like these demand more than good intentions—they require insight into the thinking and attitudes of people who have shut themselves off from the truth. Engaging the Closed Minded not only provides principles that work but shows how to use them in real life conversations and situations. You will learn:

  • How to get a fair hearing in discussions
  • How to respond to misconceptions about Christianity
  • How to identify obstacles to faith that surface during conversations
  • How to address non-Christian worldviews and beliefs
  • How to reason persuasively and logically
  • How to establish a point of contact as a springboard

Praise for the Print Edition

Engaging the Closed Minded not only provides principles that work but shows how to use them in real-life conversations and situations.

—Covenant Communicator

The seven chapters in this short book are packed with helps for the believer in giving a defense of the faith.

—Douglas M. Cecil, Bibliotheca Sacra

Every Christian serious about evangelism should add this tactical book to their apologetics library. This is one of the best 'how to' apologetics books in print today.

—Dr. Frank Harber, Professor of Evangelism Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
