“Whatever argument the Christian apologist hopes to present, he must first find, or make, its frame. There must be form, else the idea comes to nothing.”
As C. S. Lewis understood well, the more penetrating and memorable instances of apologetic defense are those with harmony between idea and form. The apologist, like the writer, must become a rhetorical craftsman, careful about how she’ll say what needs saying.
This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Corey Latta about his feature article in Volume 41 #1 (2018) called “Something Made: The Role of Form in Apologetics.”
