The Columbo show was a little before my time, but thanks to Evan Goeglein and his loan of a little book by Greg Koukl called “Tactics“, I became somewhat of a fan. Greg has built quite the system of apologetic methodology on what he calls the “Columbo Tactic”, discussed at length in his book – a system I’ve put to use with phenomenal results in the time since I read of it.
So, as a dirge to beloved Columbo portrayer Peter Falk, and to share with you the lessons learned from him via Greg Koukl, I’m posting a short clip of one of Greg’s lectures where he discusses the Columbo tactic. I couldn’t find the entire lecture to embed or I would have, but if you want to see more from a different lecture you can follow this link. Worth your time if you want to learn to be an “ambassador” for Christ.
