ETHICS AT THE EDGE OF LIFE:

CLEAR THINKING ON THE MOST TROUBLING BIOETHICAL ISSUES

Biola University, La Mirada

======================================================

 

with Scott Rae, Ph.D. and Scott Klusendorf, M.A.

 

MASTER THE PRO-LIFE POSITION!

 

Advances in medical procedures, technologies, and drugs have made issues of life and death more and more complicated. As Christians, because we care deeply about life and death issues, we often are tagged as people who are standing against progress and the relief of suffering. Hence, we need help from experts to understand what is really going on in modern medicine and how to make a persuasive case in the public square for the biblical views. We are bringing in two world-class Christian experts on bioethics, Dr. Scott Rae and Scott Klusendorf, to help us understand and defend the biblical position on the most difficult subjects: abortion, euthanasia, reproductive technology, and more. Graduate credit toward the M.A. degree in Christian Apologetics is available.

Biola University, La Mirada

I’M GLAD YOU ASKED: RESPONDING TO WORK PLACE QUESTIONS ABOUT FAITH

Biola University, La Mirada

=====================================================================

 

with Craig Hazen

 

Carrying on a conversation about Christ in the secular work place can feel like a very awkward business. Our co-workers are holding on to all kinds of religious ideas from atheism to Mormonism to New Age spirituality. And almost all of them think they know what Christianity is really about—and why it cannot be exclusively true.

 

What we have seen over the years is that when followers of Jesus gain the knowledge and confidence they need to answer basic questions with skill and humility, everything changes! "I’m Glad You Asked" is a seminar specially designed to enrich your mind and increase your boldness to share the truth of the Gospel with those you see almost every day. You’ll find yourself ready to fulfill the command of the Apostle Peter to "be prepared always to give an answer, a reason for the hope that you have!"

 

Co-sponsored with Crowell School of Business and part of their Work-Life Certificate Program

SANITY IN THE VOTING BOOTH:

UNDERSTANDING THE CHRISTIAN ROLE IN POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT

Biola University, La Mirada

======================================================

 

with Kevin Lewis, J.D. and Scott Waller, Ph.D.

 

Some have called the Fall 2010 election the most important vote in our generation. If they are right, what role can or should a committed follower of Christ play in such an epic event? Do we vote, campaign, contribute, or stay out of the whole worldly mess? And if we do get involved, how do we sort out the complex issues to know what to do?

 

Our own Prof. Kevin Lewis, J.D. will be joined by Dr. Scott Waller to bring biblical wisdom to bear on these weighty issues in a fast-paced weekend seminar designed to discover the proper foundation for Christian participation in politics and government. Law, history, economics, and the most controversial policy issues debated today will be sifted through the thoughtful biblical teaching to bring light to dark times just before the November election. Not to be missed! Graduate credit toward the M.A. degree in Christian Apologetics is available.
