FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – An article by Calvin Pearson, associate professor of preaching at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, was recently featured on the Web site of Preaching magazine. In his article, titled “Using Argumentation Theory in a World Hostile to Truth,” Pearson notes that preachers today work in a “difficult context.”

“Preaching the judgment of God upon sin to people whose favorite misunderstood biblical command is ‘judge not’ is a heavy task,” he writes to exemplify this difficulty. “We must be skilled in argumentation so that our increasingly hostile listeners will have every opportunity to hear what God is saying and will take action based upon what they hear. We must be as shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.”
