This event is the first of its kind and I suspect it will be the first of many more.
The inaugural Women in Apologetics conference, hosted by Biola University, takes place this coming weekend, January 19-20th.
Christian apologetics is a branch of Christian theology that aims to present historical, reasoned, and evidential bases for Christianity, defending it against objections.
In addition to the keynotes, there will be 12 breakout sessions, each featuring specialized topics, answering questions such as, “Can we trust the Bible?”, “Does Christianity oppress women?”, and “Who is Jesus in Islam?”
I have the priviledge of participating as a breakout speaker at this historic event! You can see me on the bottom row, third over. Can you guess what I’ll be talking about?
The arts, of course!
The title of my talk is, “A Creative Defense: How the Arts Point to God”. There will be three main areas of interest: shared aesthetic experience, recognition of beauty, and the uniqueness of human creativity.
My Google slides are ready, my dress is back from the cleaners, and I have a ready supply of chocolate for the trip!
If you have any questions about this upcoming conference, please don’t hesitate to contact them here. And if you are able to make it to Biola next weekend for the conference, please stop by and say hello!
Have a blessed weekend!
