Karen Swallow Prior Quotes: The Topic Was Eloquence Something

The Topic Was Eloquence, Something Christians Had Been Conflicted About Since The First-century Church When Paul Wrote That In Bringing The Gospel, He Did Not Come With "eloquence." A Few Centuries Later, Saint Augustine Wrestled With The Value Of Eloquence, Associating It With His Pagan Background And Training In Greek Rhetoric While Simultaneously Employing It Winsomely In His Christian Writings. Such Suspicion Of Beauty And Form, Whether In Art, Literature, Speech, Or Human Flesh, Has Shadowed Christian Thought Throughout The History Of The Church; Sadly So, Considering God Is The Author Of All Beauty.
