Too often in our media-saturated culture, political opponents are invited to spar with each other on radio and television news segments, not in order to actually work through their differences, but instead as almost a kind of blood-sport. The fact that these exchanges frequently produce “more heat than light” is actually part of the entertainment value. But how are we being shaped in the process? Do we belittle our political and religious opponents, and talk over them as if their views don’t matter? What does the New Testament have to say about our rhetoric? On this program Michael Horton discusses this subject with Doug Jones, author of A Rhetoric of Love.
A Rhetoric of Love by Douglas M. Jones is available through Veritas Press.
