      A paper at IBR on late Sat morning. More philosophical in orientation
      (scampering through Homer, the pre-Socratics, the Sophists, Augustine,
      Descartes, and Gadamer, with a nod to the personalists like McMurray) I
      will argue that Aristotle was right and that the only appropriate way to
      "do" NT theology is through metaphor and analogy since it concerns
      material that could be otherwise and thus belongs as do all discussions
      of human meaning and significance to the field of persuasive rhetoric.
