Abstract
The article discusses the author's efforts to deal with students' resistance while teaching composition at a conservative Christian university. It notes how the integration of views on Christian faith and rhetorical genre theory can encourage critical thinking among evangelical students. It cites different arguments about resistance pedagogy and proposes to facilitate composition by helping Christian students understand how resistance to other ideologies influence their lives.
