On January 4-9, 2015, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary will host one of the largest apologetic events in North America. “Defend the Faith” is an annual conference which features five days of instruction by leading apologists. The event website explains, “We seek to equip Christians with the answers to the tough questions that the world is asking.” This year’s speakers includes Gary Habermas, Paul Copan, and Douglas Groothuis.
I attended last year’s conference and was impressed at the depth and breadth of the content. There is still time to register, and it is possible to earn graduate credit for courses such as Christian Apologetics, Christian Ethics, and The Problem of Evil. College students can attend for free, and the evening presentations are free to the public. For details on the speakers, schedule, courses, and registration, click here. Some of the presentations will be available via live streaming here.
