Publisher's Description

Uses Jesus' words and actions found in the New Testament to systematically evaluate his rhetorical stylings, drawing real lessons from his teachings that today's readers can employ.

Jesus of Nazareth never wrote a book, held political office, or wielded a sword. He never gained sway with the mighty or influential. He never took up arms against the governing powers in Rome. He was a lower-class worker who died an excruciating death at the age of thirty-three. Yet, in spite of all odds-obscurity, powerlessness, and execution-his words revolutionized human history.

How to Argue Like Jesus examines the life and words of Jesus and describes the various ways in which he sought-through the spoken word, his life, and his disciples-to reach others with his message. The authors then pull some very simple rhetorical lessons from Jesus' life that readers can use today.

Both Christian and non-Christian leaders in just about any field can improve their ability to communicate effectively by studying the words and methods of history's greatest communicator.

    Carter and Coleman captured the importance of the head, heart, and hands mentality as applied to utilization within both speeches for information and speeches for persuasion. This idea carries over into daily communication as well. Their emphasis on Jesus' teaching was supported with Scripture. This book is a helpful tool of evaluation - especially for those with a Christian foundation.

    These brothers serve us well with this book. They explain the classical rhetorical method as exemplified in the teachings of Jesus recorded in scripture. Explanations are understandable, but you can be sure, they delve fairly deep and use terminology that most people without a classical education will not have heard or read. But, that's the point of reading the book: to learn. And, communicators especially should find this book a treasure, as they can strengthen their craft with the same tools as their master, walking the path of true disciples in the gift of persuasive teaching and proclamation.
