Ratio Christi Symposium

symposium2017We look forward to the Ratio Christi Symposium again this year! It is part of an annual event held at Purdue University led by multiple campus ministries and churches, drawing from colleges and communities in the surrounding region. The purpose is to discuss and debate probing questions about faith, reason, and life via panel discussions, lectures, and debates.

This year, the main topic will address the credibility of contemporary and biblical miracle claims. The keynote speaker will be New Testament scholar Dr. Craig Keener exploring the question, “Are Miracles Intellectually Credible?” Keener recently authored a two-volume book set, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts, and is the author of the Bible Background Commentary among other publications.
Keener will also give presentations on the notion of the Historical Jesus (exploring the evidence for our knowledge of Jesus) and racial reconciliation in light of current events.

If you are in the area, we encourage you to attend the Keynote on Friday February 3rd at 7:00 pm Eastern time. The keynote is also available via live stream on their website.
