Abstract

To consider Christian theological practices of arguing is to consider everything else as well. It is to consider the community and its patterns of relations between persons; it is to consider philosophy and its patterns of rules for drawing inferences; it is to consider the formation of doctrine and the deliberative councils that produce and rethink it; it is to consider Christian ethics and the unending sphere of contention in which it is located; it is to consider the Bible and the perennial disagreements over its interpretation; it is to consider the university which is a house for argumentation; it is to consider the media and the challenges which radio, television, and the internet pose to practices of argumentation.
