Calling all Pastors and Teachers!

I’m excited to announce that Apologetics Canada and Northview Community Church are providing a free lunch and teaching time with Dr. Gary Habermas to the first 100 pastors and teachers that sign up!

When: Thursday, March 6th, 2014 @ 12 PM
Where: Northview Community Church (32040 Downes Rd., Abbotsford, BC)

Besides the free lunch, Dr. Habermas will be giving a lecture on “Teaching the Resurrection” followed by Q&A.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Dr. Habermas’ work I have put together Andy’s top 10 things to know:

    1. He loves Jesus.

 

    1.  His first wife died of cancer and he still loves Jesus.

 

    1. Dr. Habermas is honest about his doubts and frustrations. In fact, he wrote a book entitled “Dealing with Doubt.”

 

    1. Not only is Dr. Habermas one of the most passionate speakers I’ve ever heard, but he’s also one of my favorite. I personally rank him among the top five greatest apologists and communicators alive today. Period.

 

    1. His knowledge of the resurrection has earned him a top seat amongst scholarly circles, both Christian and non-Christian. This makes sense considering he has dedicated his professional life to the examination of the relevant historical, philosophical, and theological issues surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus.

 

    1. His minimal facts approach to the resurrection makes me want to weep with joy every time I hear it. It’s so awesome.

 

    1. He’s quite literally a walking encyclopedia on the resurrection. Nobody works harder to keep up on the current scholarly trends concerning the historical Jesus and New Testament studies than he does.

 

    1. The man is a machine! He has authored or co-authored 35 books on religious and philosophical subjects, contributed to over 60 chapters or articles in books, and published over 100 articles and reviews in peer-reviewed journals.

 

    1. Dr. Habermas is famous for his 1985 debate with rock-star Atheist Anthony Flew. Not only did a panel of judges conclude that Dr. Hambermas won that debate, but he was also influential in Flew eventually moving from Atheism to Deistic Theism.

 

    1. Dr. Habermas is a Keynote speaker at the 2014 Apologetics Canada Conference being held at Northview Community Church and Willingdon on March 7-8. Register for the conference at: www.apologeticscanadaconference.com

 

Finally, did I mention it’s free?! However, we will have some resources available for purchase and you can get it autographed:) Yes, I’m one of those nerdy scholarly groupies.

If you would like to sign up (and why wouldn’t you?!), RSVP to Cecilia at [email protected]. Give her your name, organization and phone number. Let her know of any guests you wish to bring with you.

See you all there!
