CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two leading religious scholars will explore how Christian identity is shaped by the current culture in a North Park University-sponsored forum this Friday, Oct. 20th.
Princeton University Professor Dr. Robert P. George, dubbed "the country's most influential conservative Christian thinker" by the New York Times, will kick off the conversation by addressing what it means to be a Christian "in a culture that is forced upon us today." Dr. George, who holds Princeton's McCormick Chair in Jurisprudence, will also discuss whether or not Christians can express their faith in public places of employment without violating the law.
Dr. Edith Humphrey to respond
Following his remarks, Dr. Edith Humphrey, of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, will engage Dr. George's presentation. A professor of New Testament, Dr. Humphrey has published extensively on topics ranging from C.S. Lewis to human sexuality. North Park Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, Dr. Bradley Nassif, will moderate the event, which will be followed by an audience-participation question and answer session.
The event, to be held at 7:30 in Anderson Chapel, is the second in NPU's Engaging Orthodoxy series, made possible by the John C. Kulis Foundation. This event is free and open to the public.
