A Rhetorical Approach to Teaching Theology

The rhetorical approach to pedagogy draws people into a conversation about beliefs and convictions whether in the classroom or in the congregation. It encourages persuasion, dialogue, and clarity of thought, and recognizes that we are continually moving toward a truth we never fully possess. We can learn from one another’s theological experience in the real world. In this interview provided by Resources for American Christianity, David S. Cunningham expands on the theme of re-appropriating the art of rhetoric.

David Cunningham explains how the teaching of theology should be a dialogue that engages students and parishioners even as it persuades them to rethink and redirect their priorities in the light of the truth found in Christian tradition.
