If you are within reasonable travel distance of the Vancouver, BC, Canada area (maybe even if you aren’t), you need to make it to this Christian apologetics conference. Save the dates of March 1st & 2nd, 2013 @ Northview Community Church in Abbotsford, B.C. The church is in dire need of people like you, who might have an interest in apologetics (case-making), to get trained-up as best you can and take that knowledge back to your local church (and, of course, our aim at TilledSoil.org is to assist you in that goal if you would like).
I have immensely enjoyed the previous two conferences, and this one looks to be no exception. Speakers include: Dr. William Lane Craig, Dr. Andy Bannister, M.D. John Patrick, and J. Warner Wallace. There are also well over a dozen break-out sessions so you can maximize your education and experience to meet your needs. We’re looking forward to it and are proud to be a sponsor. But, I think the part we look forward to most, is meeting all our fellow apologists, and experiencing the excitement of Christians being exposed, often for the first time, to the fact that there is a solid foundation to their faith. That excitement kind of energizes us to do our work for the rest of the year!
You can (and should) watch previous years conferences on the Apologetics Canada YouTube channel HERE. But, if you attend the conference, not only will you get to meet these great speakers, as well as fellow apologists, you’ll also get to attend some of the excellent break-out sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend you at least watch Jim Warner Wallace’s “God’s Crime Scene” as Jim will again be at this upcoming conference. He also has a book coming out very soon which will be an apologetics MUST READ! “Cold-Case Christianity”
Here is a recent review of it by one of my apologist colleagues, J.W. Wartick. It looks like it is going to become one of the best books on the historicity of the Gospels. It is also going to open a lot of eyes to the power of circumstantial evidence (which is often misunderstood). If that doesn’t convince you, just check out the endorsements! (Hey, where is my autographed copy, Jim??? Just kidding! (1)And, those of you who know me, know I’ll do my reading of it on the e-book version. Autographed copies are nice keepsakes though, and look nice on the bookshelf.)
Update: Monday, January 14, 2013
Don’t miss Jim’s speaking tour around the Vancouver area, starting the end of this week (January 18th – 24th). See the Apologetics Canada events page for more information (or, see the previous link for the Facebook page).
