We’re very excited to announce a unique opportunity to witness and participate in the kinds of conversation that matter. Mike Horton and Roger Olson have recently written two books: For Calvinism and Against Calvinism, respectively. They will be on stage together at Biola University on Saturday, October 15, 2011, to discuss their differences and why the issue matters.
This isn’t a debate; it’s a conversation. It’s based on twenty years of mutual respect. Sadly, these kinds of conversations don’t happen nearly often enough. Most of the time we’re looking for a fight, for a debate, for an opportunity to score points. But for the church to know and experience a modern Reformation, we need to engage those in and outside of our circles with respect and a willingness to listen.
We don’t want you to just listen in; we want you to join the conversation. There will be an opportunity for you to submit questions for both Dr. Olson and Dr. Horton. We’ll have more information about that later, but for now I hope that you’ll make plans to join us on October 15th at Biola University. If you can’t join us at Biola, plan on joining us in Miami, Florida on January 28, 2012, where we’ll host the same conversation for our East Coast friends.
The doors open at 7:00 pm on October 15th at Biola. Visit our bookstore at the event and grab your own copy of For Calvinism and Against Calvinism. There will be an opportunity for the authors to sign books after the conversation concludes.
