    there are a lot of athiests at my school.. I dont really know where to even start?

    many of them have good arguments, then again some are pretty dull on what they're arguing sometimes.

    where would you start, when evangelizing an atheist? scripture?

    It always depends upon their arguments. If they are objecting to science and its relationship to the scriptures, then I would study what the Bible says about the natural world and research information on Creation Ministries International, Institute for Creation Research, Answers in Genesis, and Reasons to Believe (OEC). If they are objecting to the Bible in general, then absolutely study and know the Bible well in many ways including some Hebrew and Greek understandings; hermeneutics is very useful (I recommend the Crossway ESV Study Bible. It is compiled by 9 scholars who went back to the Hebrew and Greek to understand what it really says. It has fantastic articles and notes.). Also, study debate tips and logical reasoning tactics.

    What do you think?

    Interesting!
    Maybe I'll see about getting that crossways bible. I'm going to check out a few of those ministries to, maybe that will help me get a better grip on understanding what types of tactics to use, like what the biblical answers are to the atheists problems.

    The best thing I find is not to force scripture on them.
    Allow Jesus to talk through you and spread the word but no forcefully.
    Talk to them about the Bible and Jesus and see if they are actually interested, however if they are not, pray for them and see if they come to Jesus on their own.
    I used to be an a strong atheist and I know that when people forced scripture on me I was very, very abrupt.
