Conversation Stoppers Series

What is a Conversation Stopper?

Conversation Stoppers are those common accusations, declarations, rhetorical questions, or sincere questions about various aspects of Christianity that can trip up or completely tongue tie the Christian, hence they "stop" the conversation.

The Conversation Stoppers Series will enable you to respond to several common objections to the Christian faith. Each Conversation Stopper explains the typical assumptions behind the objection/question, provides key talking points to continue the conversation, and lists additional resources about the topic.
