Christianity is not just a faith. It is a faith based on fact. Unfortunately most who believe in Christ do not know much of the fact. Neither do they conform to the tenets of Christ’s teaching.The Bible teaches: Study the scriptures and you will find me. This is very true.
As far as atheists are concerned. There are those who enjoy debate and will debate a knowledgeable discussion and on the other hand those who will react in anger and aggression. Unfortunate, by far the greater are the latter. The only atheists I know who accepted Christ are those who set out to disprove Christianity or entered into discourse with someone who truly knows the Bible.
