Most books on apologetics focus on the content of apologetics, making sure you know what you believe. The best books on apologetics I’ve encountered are those that focus on preparing your mind ahead of time for an encounter, which means more than just having the right things to say, it also means knowing how to say them.

“Tactics” is probably the best “intro to apologetics” book I’ve ever read. While not revolutionary in content, Greg Koukl changes the game in the way he presents academic concepts, all while encouraging Christians to speak to their opponents with grace.

There is overlap between a classical and presuppositionalist view of evangelism, as Greg Bahnsen noted in his debate over apologetics with R.C. Sproul Sr., and I think this book focuses on those areas.
