Many Christians cringe at the thought of talking with non-Christians about faith. But one important thing any Christian can do is understand their friends—listen to them and consider how they think. Then it becomes much easier to truly communicate God’s truth.
The eight-lesson Faith Path workbook is designed to be used in a group with the Faith Path DVD, and builds on Mittelberg’s sensible, evenhanded approach to evangelism. DVD segments include teaching from Mittelberg, as well as short interviews with fascinating people talking about the faith paths they were on before they came to Christ. Approaches such as relativism, traditionalism, mysticism, authoritarianism, and others are explored. Interviews seen on the DVD are then discussed in a thought-provoking, enjoyable group format, as well as in workbook entries.
No other DVD/workbooks exist for Choosing Your Faith (workbook includes leader’s guide materials), so Faith Path—with live interviews and audience interaction—promises to set new trends for learning how to engage others in spiritual conversations.
