Okay, so, I wrote the Friendly Evangelism posts in an attempt to provide a reasonable answer to the question, "How can Christians talk about their beliefs to non-believers and former believers without driving them away or giving offense?"
Today, I find that Alise Wright - who happens, among other things, to be a Christian - has hit a lot of the same points in a much more succinct format in a guest post over on Rachel Held Evans' blog. So if you're interested in this topic, pop over there and give it a read. There's also a lot of good material in the comments, with the result that Alise Wright has posted a follow-up on her own blog, pondering the question of whether deconversion (and/or faith) is a choice. (My answer? Arguably yes, but I don't think "choice" is a very good word for it.)
Have a look. It's good stuff.
