saint augustine ‘On Christian Doctrine’ translated by D W Roberston, Jr
***This paper can substitute the 3-4 main points and, instead, answer the question, “Does Augustine give us the basis for a ‘Christian Rhetoric?'” Is there such a thing as a Christian rhetoric like some claim there is a feminist rhetoric, or a “Black Rhetoric,” or a Latin American Rhetoric?

These papers will be fairly formulaic in their structure. I only want 3-4 pages per response paper and they should be written using the following arrangement (disposition):
Background/Bio of the author: 3-5 sentences giving an overview about the author (who he was and why he was significant)—most of these are males, thus the use of “he.”
Comprehension/Understanding: Give an overview of the 3-5 main ideas from the reading(s). What are they? Why do they seem to be important? [This overview will be the bulk of the paper].
Conclusion: Overview of the key ideas to remember
