The signature move of the ultra-famous strategy game of chess.
In today's society, discussion is a lot like chess. When you're clueless about what to say or do, you get beat. When you don't see your opponent's next move, you get beat. When you get angry and act rashly and on impulse, you get beat.
When it comes to defending or sharing our faith, oftentimes the Christian life is a game of chess. Sadly all-to-many Christians start playing this game without really having any idea what they're doing. They don't know how to discuss their faith with a critic, without getting emotional.

And in my mind, that's the perfect way to think about it.
