Andrew Wilson, an author, theologian and apologist here in the UK, spoke in a Camberley church about 7 do's and don'ts With Apologetics. One of the 7 points was to make sure that you know the background of the question being asked, don't just jump into answering a question when you haven't got all of the facts.
An example of this was dealing with the problem of suffering. Often times Christians, and I've done this as well, will answer the problem of suffering question by going straight to the fall of man and discussing why sin entered the world and so suffering entered the world with it. Though theologically this may be a correct answer, it leaves nothing for the listener to grab hold of.
The problem of suffering can often come from a personal experience of suffering and the fall of man is such an impersonal response that it falls short of being satisfying as an answer. It is likely that the issue with the problem of suffering actually comes down to the problem of death and with that a question can be given back: why is it that something within us doesn't like death? No matter how long a person has lived, their family still mourns their loss. No matter how often we see suffering on the news something within us still says this is wrong. Why? What solution does their current world view have for this problem?
The gospel holds an amazing answer that death has no place in this world and in the end, pain and suffering will be removed. It is why it is such good news. No other religion's founder has successfully conquered death and no other world view will be able to provide such hope or an intellectually satisfying response as to why we naturally feel that death is a terrible thing. Jesus empty tomb can give us all hope.
A redeemed mind is a terrible thing to waste.
