ABSTRACT
With new attention provided in recent years to the cause of nuclear disarmament, some evangelical Christians are attempting to energize Christians to join the cause. Although the leader of the Two Futures Project, Tyler Wigg-Stevenson, employs jeremiadic arguments, his rhetoric contradicts the claims of some scholars that the modern jeremiadic rhetorical form has become secularized. This study analyzes the rhetoric of Wigg-Stevesnon to determine how he uses references to God and scriptures to construct and strengthen his jeremiad and how he attempts to convince his audiences that they should view the topic of nuclear weapons from a religious perspective. Implications are offered concerning the modern jeremiad and how this rhetorical form should be conceptualized and analyzed by scholars.
