Contents: Introduction: The Force of Words; The Arena of Religious Discourse; Orators and Audiences; The Public Discourse; Two Sermons; A Model of Chinese Christian Rhetoric and Its Origins; The Chinese Christian World View; Church Unity and Social Conflict; Personal Disorder and the Quest for Identity; Leadership and Religious Authority; and Identification and Transformation.
