Four helps for learning from Jesus’ rhetoric:
1. Joe Carter and John Coleman. How to Argue Like Jesus: Learning Persuasion from History’s Greatest Communicator. Wheaton: Crossway, 2009.
2. Stan Guthrie. All That Jesus Asks: How His Questions Can Teach and Transform Us. Grand Rapids: Baker, 2010.
Kent Hughes observes that this book “is one-of-a-kind because it is the only book to date to deal with all the questions that Jesus asked—all three hundred of them!”
3. Randy Newman. Questioning Evangelism. Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2004.
J. P. Moreland: “This book is must reading for those who want to learn how to bring apologetics into evangelism in a biblical and relationally sensitive sort of way.”
D. A. Carson: “This book reflects both a deep grasp of biblical theology and a penetrating compassion for people. How very much like the Master himself!”
4. Robert H. Stein. The Method and Message of Jesus’ Teachings. 2nd ed. Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 1994.
