Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter presents rhetorical approaches to analysis of religious discourse, including how it relates to public talk about faith, sermons and khutbahs, and mass media presentations of faith. The chapter explores the ways in which speakers, particularly in public contexts, use language to influence and manipulate audiences and the potential effect this has on the presentation and development of belief. Finally, the chapter discusses how tools of rhetoric can be used to understand the relationships among text producers and consumers, how rhetorical situations emerge and develop, and how social action is accomplished in religious discourse.
