Special Event, Sept 3

Finally, the video you’ve been awaiting — for the upcoming dialogue between Timothy George and Frank Beckwith on September 3rd which I’ll moderate. Just sit back and let it minister to your heart!

(Following is a summary of the event’s purpose, if you’d like more context)

In what sense are (Roman) Catholics Evangelical and Evangelical (Protestants) Catholic? And assuming that we can agree upon an answer, what difference does our conclusion have for the millions of people who relate across the Catholic/Protestant divide—for family members, neighbors, spouses, coworkers, professors, and classmates?

These questions will be addressed in the annual Penner Forum on Thursday, September 3, 2009 at 7:00pm in Edman Chapel on the campus of Wheaton College. Representing the Protestant side is Dr. Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School and Executive Editor for Christianity Today. Dr. Francis Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies at Baylor University and author of Return to Rome: Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic, will present the Roman Catholic side. Moderating is Chris Castaldo, pastor and author of Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic.

The Penner Forum is sponsored by The Center for Applied Christian Ethics and The Penner Foundation. It is free and open to the public. For more information visit www.chriscastaldo.com/events.php or call (630) 752-5886.
