About the Book:
Faith. Everybody lives by it—even skeptics and atheists! That’s right. Everyone you know trusts something they believe in but can’t prove or know absolutely. They take it on faith. And if you want to talk to your friends about your faith, it helps to understand what they believe and how they got there. Because badgering people to change their minds just doesn’t work.
Based on Mark Mittelberg’s book Choosing Your Faith, this workbook (and the DVD it supports) builds on Mittelberg’s sensible, evenhanded approach to evangelism. Inside you’ll meet six fascinating people who looked at the world in six different ways before they embraced faith in Christ. Very likely you’ll recognize people you know—and you may even recognize yourself.
Work through Faith Path and you will:
Understand people who approach life differently from you
Recognize the danger of paths that lead away from Christ
Deepen your own faith in Christ and reinforce your reasons for believing
Gain confidence in talking about Christ with others
Relativists, traditionalists, mystics, authoritarians, and others.they’re all here. And after you understand how these folks think about faith, you can help them find a trustworthy pathway to truth. Because no matter what your friends believe, they still matter to God.

Let me start off by saying this workbook is best worked on when accompanied by the companion DVD, FaithPath. Becuase I did not have the DVD, I could not work through some of the things in this workbook. However, I did read the workbook. Mittelberg has provided a training tool that will give you remarkable insight on the different paths of faith. He helps you to understand yourself as well as others through this teaching book. By the end of the workbook you should better understand the many ways of embracing your faith and reaching out to others, and discussing your beliefs. Mittelberg uses insight and personal experiences to bring forth a teaching guide that should be used in all churches, to help everyone learn how to be a light to their curious friends. A definite 4star study guide!
