Religious argumentation is sometimes supposed to be different from other kinds of argumentation. George Kennedy for example mentions a radical Christian rhetoric in which the message is proclaimed rather than argued, but in my study of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians I have found deliberate argumentation. This argumentation can be analyzed with Toulmin’s model of argumentation. The warrants for the argumentation are of special interest. I have found warrants of several types. Some are based in the topoi of logical inferences common to all human communication. Others are based in the cultural values of the ancient Mediterranean world. And some are based in the religious convictions of the members of the Christian group.
