A FAITH-BUILDING OPPORTUNITY: ARCHAEOLOGY & THE BIBLE A class to be taught by John Oakes for an AIM program class Archaeolgy and the Bible in Marietta, Georgia July 10-12. See below for details.
A FAITH-BUILDING OPPORTUNITY: ARCHAEOLOGY & THE BIBLE
Last year’s Continuing-AIM (C-AIM) session with David Bercot was a hit. Thanks for your interest and for the great attendance! This email is a reminder about the 2009 C-AIM event.
Archaeology and the Bible will be offered 10-12 July. We think this could be a great event for strengthening campus students’ faith – and others’! Teaching in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago (evidences), I was reminded once more of the tremendous potential for faith-building apologetics classes. This would also be a good opportunity for seekers and even skeptics.
John Wilson, our guest speaker, is a university professor (Pepperdine) and professional archaeologist. John Oakes is a university professor in Chemistry & Physics, and travels worldwide teaching on apologetics. Foster Stanback has an excellent class on OT archaeology. He taught it at the teachers’ seminar in Egypt (last July). In addition, Joey Harris and I will co-teach a class on biblical archaeology. Lots of colorful pictures, and tips for how to share the facts in evangelism. A highlight of the conference will be the visit to Emory University’s excellent museum.
The seminar is $10/day, or $25 for the entire weekend. The price includes the ($5.50) Emory University visit, as well as drinks & snacks. Come to part or all of the weekend. BTW, the weekend will be filmed, producing a DVD set (just as we did last year).
