A TNRTB Best of Series: Think Again, Part 8 (of 12)

When people engage in debates about hot topics they often speak past each other. Even worse, they sometimes misrepresent each other’s arguments. What logical fallacy does that constitute? Part 8 in my series on logic explores this common mistake, known as attacking the straw man, in the reasoning process

For a great follow-up to this article, listen to my podcast, Straight Thinking, in particular episode 9, “Golden Rule of Apologetics: Avoiding the Straw Man.” As I work diligently on a new book on Christian apologetics, I hope you will enjoy reviewing—or reading for the first time—this series on logic.
