Christianity Today 2021 Book Award Winner: Apologetics & Evangelism
Telling a Better Story clears a path to a more effective, empathetic apologetics for today—both for experienced apologists and those new to sharing their faith with others.
Today's Christians often view the practice of defending their faith as pushy or unnecessary. Won't it just be taken for proselytizing? Don't many unbelievers find it offensive? Many Christians have shifted to a strategy of hoping that our lives will show Christ to our neighbors—and, while this is certainly good, it's no substitute to actively telling people about Christ.
In Telling a Better Story, author Joshua Chatraw presents a new and refreshing way to engage in apologetics that will help you tell the story of Christ in a holistic, culturally-contextual manner that—while being respectful—helps unbelievers imagine a more complete happiness and a better meaning to life.
Telling a Better Story will give you the tools to:
- Understand the cultural stories that surround us.
- Recognize how these secular stories have shaped the way many people think.
- Learn how to tell God's story in a fresh way that allows today's younger generations to see it as a more meaningful and more hopeful story than the scripts around it.
Finally, you'll also learn how to deal with the perennial issues and common objections to Christianity.

What is your story? The gospel is a story that is
Chatraw, gives a different way of sharing the story of the gospel in this book, that is a very useful tool.The first couple of chapters I felt dragged a bit for him to finally get to the point. However the last 4 chapters were excellent. How do you better understanding where people are coming from? Their backgrounds, experiences and lifestyle all play huge key into sharing the gospel... in the story (The gospel) that can be reflective in their own life. That forgiveness, self-sacrifice, mercy and Justice, all coincide together. Might read again because there is much I wish to break down and digest after reading this book.
