What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"How to Argue Like Jesus will help communications professors to teach angelically. Carter and Coleman Christianize Aristotle and add heavenly heuristics that show how Jesus used story and imagery, and how we can go and do likewise."
Marvin Olasky, Editor in Chief, World Magazine

"This engaging and edifying study by two gifted Christian writers shows that Jesus understood better than all the others both who he was talking to and what they needed to hear. It turns out that the right kind of straight talk really can confound the smooth experts, and being rhetorically effective doesn't have to be at the expense of your good name. This is a genuine self-help book."
Peter Lawler, Dana Professor of Government, Berry College; author, Homeless and at Home in America

"Anti-intellectualism plagues the modern church, but the best response is not a false intellectualism. How to Argue like Jesus falls into neither trap. It effectively teaches logic and critical thinking in the context of a well-lived life. This is what the church needs."
John Mark Reynolds, Founder and Director, Torrey Honors Institute

"Carter and Coleman take a complex topic and distill it into a clear and readable volume on proper communication. I highly recommend this book."
William J. Bennett, Fellow, The Claremont Institute; co-founder of Culture11
