Why Good Arguments Often Fail: Making a More Persuasive Case for Christ
James W. Sire
Why is it that solid, rational arguments for the Christian faith often fail? How can we make our arguments better?
Sometimes the problem has to do with us and not the arguments. Our arrogance, aggressiveness or cleverness gets in the way, or we misread our audience. Sometimes the problem lies with the hearers. Their worldview or moral blindness keeps them from hearing and understanding the truth.
With wisdom borne of both formal and informal experience, Sire grapples with these issues and offers practical insight into making a more persuasive case for Christ.
Includes an annotated bibliography of resources for framing effective arguments.
