We just finished up a video debate between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox in our community group. I asked everyone to think of at least one positive thing about both the atheist and the Christian. Fortunately we were able to generate a lot of positive things about Dawkins instead of just blowing him off because ultimately we weren’t “pulling” for him (though he did have better arguments). It was a helpful exercise for our group to affirm what we could, before critiquing what we couldn’t. We all concluded that Lennox probably would have been more affective if he adopted this approach.
