COMMENDING THE FAITH | A half day lecture series
Exploring: Science, history, experience, objections, hypocrisy & religions

A series led by Rev Dr Chris Walker at the Centre for Ministry on three Saturdays.
It is for anyone who is interested in how to speak about faith in Christ in the context of Australia today.
It is preferable if people can attend the whole three days, but it is possible to attend for one or two days.
There will be input, stories and engagement with the topics.
Only $20 for all three Saturdays!

PART 1. Saturday May 26
Introduction: the challenges or questions people have. In the context of Australia today, an approach that is neither defensive nor aggressive, but confessional. Examples from history.
PART 2, Saturday June 2
What the Christian faith has contributed to society. The new atheism of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens and the older atheism of Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzche and Freud. Charles Darwin and the relation between science, faith and the Bible.
PART 3, Saturday June 16
Typical criticisms of Christianity, such as the accusation of hypocrisy and the problem of suffering. Faith-sharing processes with Rev Dr Ian Robinson. Points of contact as we seek to commend the faith with others.
