Is there such a thing as Christian sociolinguistics?

Also the pope's Verbum Domini seems important maybe.

Hi Joel, Depending on your definition of sociolinguistics but if it includes anthropolical linguistics there must be. e.g. William Smalley

and more recently Paul Hiebert's "gospel in human contexts"

How did I miss this??

In the end I think I'm looking for a Christian(influenced) theory of language that is primarily based in social interaction. But this is great. thank you!
