Defend Chapter 9

Finally, this is it. The culmination. All of your hard work has been preparation for this moment. Standing in front of the judging panel, you are ready to deliver your presentation. But how? What are the foundations of solid delivery? In Chapter 9 of Defend, the last chapter of the book, I address the three classic aspects of rhetoric: ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is your character, your credibility–how much can the judges trust you? Pathos is your passion–do you really care about this topic? Logos is your logic, your facts, your support–did you just make up these ideas, or do Scripture and other sources back them up? With about a dozen tips on how to improve your ethos, pathos, and logos, this chapter is a must-read.
