Introduction

Purpose How to be prepared to contend for the faith when you´re least likely to be ready.
i.e. Saturday afternoon and you are mowing the lawn or you are heading out to do some shopping and the doorbell rings. Uh oh... there are two ladies with satchels or two young men wearing white shirts and clip-on ties.
