Here lies an opportunity to hear from two excellent theologians (and attend a free Apologetics Lecture). If you can make it, you will definitely benefit from them. All three events are FREE and will take place in Southern California, in Oct. and Nov. If you are student of the Word, these may be of interest to you.
The first free event is a Free Kick-Off with Lee Strobel. I’ve been at one of his previous gathering and it was outstanding. He will be presenting the Gospel and Answering Objections: The Unexpected Adventure. Date: Thursday, October 22, 7:00 – 9:30 pm. First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton, Main Auditorium. 2801 N. Brea Blvd. Fullerton, CA 92835. If you can’t make it out to the event you can watch it “on-demand” here.
The event continues with a paid registration and includes speakers; Mark Mittelberg, Erik Thoennes, and Craig Hazen. They will be teaching a powerful synthesis between evangelism and apologetics that can make our Gospel preaching, in St. Paul’s words, “powerful through God” (2 Cor 10:4). Get more info here.
The second event takes place on November 2nd, 2009 at my alma mater, Azusa Pacific University. Admission is free. Register here. Stanley Hauer was has sought to recover the significance of the virtues for understanding the nature of the Christian life. This search has led him to emphasize the importance of the church, as well as narrative for understanding Christian existence.
His work cuts across disciplinary lines as he is in conversation with systematic theology, philosophical theology and ethics, political theory, as well as the philosophy of social science and medical ethics. He was named “America’s Best Theologian” by TIME in 2001. Hauerwas, who holds a joint appointment in Duke Law School, delivered the prestigious Gifford Lectureship at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland in 2001.
If you’re a learner and live in the area, I highly recommend these events. Did I say it was free yet? BTW, here’s a short definition of theology that I find pretty accurate.
I just received this invitation so I’m adding this info here:
