When: Join us tonight at 7:30 p.m. when Professor Kenneth Samples will wrap up his Academy series entitled "Historic Christianity’s Seven Dangerous Ideas”. The lecture for this evening will be Suffering Isn’t all Bad: The Greater Good of Suffering.
What: “Dangerous Ideas” in such disciplines as philosophy and science are ideas that challenge the standard paradigm (accepted model) of the day. These ideas go against what most people naturally think to be true and real. Such revolutionary ideas tend to threaten accepted beliefs and often contain explosive world-and-life view implications for all humanity. Historic Christianity contains numerous beliefs that are theologically and philosophically volatile in the best sense of the term. The Christian faith contains powerful truth-claims that have succeeded in transforming the church and turning the world upside down. This series of lectures will explore seven such provocative beliefs proclaimed by historic Christianity.
Textbook: This is the topic and content of a new book that Kenneth Samples is presently working on to be published by Baker Books (2012).
Where: The Academy meets at Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim. The lectures begin at 7:30 p.m., are free of charge, and are followed by a time for questions and answers, as well as a time for fellowship and refreshments.
