Klappentext

Whether rhetoric conflicts with Christianity and Christians should condemn and abandon its use is the question Troup (communications, Duquesne U., Pittsburgh) seeks answer to in Augustine's most widely read work. He finds that the good saint rejected the dominant rhetorical tradition of the late Roman Empire, known now as the Second Sophists, but did so before he converted to Christianity, and espoused an alternative that can be seen as a Christian rhetoric.

Zusammenfassung
A text inviting reconsideration of Augustine's ""Confessions"", his most known work, and to look at whether rhetoric conflicts with Christianity - and whether Christians should condemn and abandon its use. It argues that there are surprising elements to Augustine's receptivity to rhetoric.
