Agreeably persuasive

The word of the year at CASE is swasivious. It's a beauty.
According to the OED, it's an obsolete or rare word meaning 'agreeably persuasive'.
That doesn't mean people will always agree with things they read or hear at CASE; but we do hope that the kind of persuasion we are involved in will always seem agreeable. It's a tone thing.

YES -- swasivious is exactly what I believe Christian thinkers should be! Nice one, Greg.

Other readers, NB: this "tone thing" is something that we've seen as really important for Logos, and UCCF's Bethinking have recognised the same thing.
