Show Summary Details


The chapter begins with a narration of the life of the author. He teaches at a college which includes students from a wide variety faiths. The author is a Southern Baptist and particularly values a passage in the Bible from 2 Timothy 3:16. Southern Baptists emphasize discipleship and following Christ in all matters of life. The chapter then discussed some passages and expressions in the Bible that relate to the field of speech communication. The chapter focuses on the integration of faith in teaching three different areas of speech communication—interpersonal communication, small group communication, and communication ethics. Lastly, this chapter discusses eleven different intersections of the Christian faith. There are a lot of ways to connect biblical terms with skills development in human communication courses.
