Speaking Christianese and the Evangelistic Danger of Low Expectations (Podcast)

Speaking Christianese and the Evangelistic Danger of Low Expectations (Podcast)In this podcast, J. Warner talks about the habit many of us of speaking Christianese, the distinctive (and often confusing) language of the Christian faith. How can we learn to communicate important Christian concepts without sounding like we’re speaking Greek? Jim also discusses the dangerous consequences resulting from low expectations when sharing what we believe with people who seem to be completely uninterested.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.

    I enjoyed this very much. A great perspective from a former atheist–how he heard and (mis)understood the Christian jargon Christians carelessly use with unbelievers. I’ll keep this in mind while out witnessing! I don’t want to increase ‘suspicion’ among those who I speak to.
    thanks!
