Huckleberry Scones asks the age-old question; when called upon, can we offer a defense of our faith?
ABOUT THIS PARABLE
- Concept: A man sits in a bistro surrounded by his books of science and philosophy. Having just settled triumphantly on atheism as his true world view, he orders tea and huckleberry scones to celebrate. His resulting conversation with a young, Christian waitress is the centerpiece of this story of rationally and lovingly defending your faith.
- Story Origin: Original
- Setting: An urban bistro
- Always be prepared to offer a defense of your faith.
- Offer this defense in patience, kindness, and love.
- Key Bible Verse: 1Peter 3:15-16 Always be prepared to give an answer to anyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
