These and related questions will be addressed on Saturday, April 14 from 9:00am – 12:00pm in Barrows Auditorium on the campus of Wheaton College when authors of the recent book, Journeys of Faith, will deliver brief lectures on the subject and answer your questions. Sessions include:

2. Dr. Craig BlaisingDoes Accepting the Canon of Scripture Implicitly Affirm Rome’s Authority?

3. Rev. Chris Castaldo – Crossing the Tiber: Why Catholics and Protestants Convert.

4. Dr. Robert Plummer – Moderator
