Re: Christianity is unoriginal
Check out some books by Josh McDowell. He was an atheist and was challenged to prove the bible false. His studies led him to God. He wrote "Evidence that Demands a Verdict" and "More than a Carpenter"

The response of the eye witnesses to Jesus is a strong support of his truthfulness and deity. Personal testimony is very strong. What will he say when you tell him what God has done for you? What can he say to that?
Finally, keep in mind that salvation is a miracle. How do you describe the color red to someone who has been blind since birth? When will he understand? Only when his eyes are opened. Don't forget the spiritual warfare around unbelievers who have been blinded by the god of this world.
