Perhaps not since the Renaissance, when the rhetorical theologies and theological rhetorics of such figures as Thomas More, Desiderius Erasmus, and Philipp Melanchthon drew on the equally rhetorical Saint Augustine, the Church Fathers, and the Bible, have students of rhetoric and religion had so much to say to one another. Since the mid-1980s, primarily in journals but also in an increasing number of books, scholars in one field have been drawing out significant lines of inquiry and posing provocative questions to those in the other: Are rhetoric and religion in some sense "essentially" wedded? In general, what are the rhetorical warrants for religious belief? How might rhetoric mediate religion's ultimate commitments? How do rhetorical figures inform--or undermine--the movement of mind and heart to God? These and other questions, which are often not explicitly labeled "rhetorical" or "religious" but which are rhetorical and religious nonetheless, arise naturally in a time when language and communication are understood to be vital to thought, even as the meaning, the possibility, of "ultimate commitments" is impugned as hopelessly naive. Yet thoughtful and sensitive people still continue (the Enlightenment and postmodernist legacies notwithstanding) to articulate and practice their beliefs.

Anecdote and research on prayer’s clinical effectiveness has become big news of late. A 1997 Christianity Today cover story (preceding a Newsweek prayer cover story) explains “how physicians and scientists are discovering the healing power of prayer.” Although the magazine acknowledges that “petitionary prayer is not 100 percent effective” (imagine if it were), it welcomes the conclusion of Georgetown University internist and prayer researcher Dale Matthews: “Prayer is good for you. The medical effects of faith on health are not a matter of faith, but of science.”
