Top Scholars Set to Present ‘The Case for Christianity’

Conference will explore aspects of the Christian faith debated for decades

MURRIETA, Calif. (Christian Newswire)—On November 6-7, 2009, some of the country’s top scholars, such as Norman Geisler, Lee Strobel, Gary Habermas, Ron Rhodes, Ergun Caner, Ed Hindson, Greg Koukl and others, will assemble in Diamond Bar, Calif., at ‘The Case for Christianity’ conference sponsored by Veritas Evangelical Seminary.

Lectures will address crucial components of the Christian faith that have been debated by evangelical and secular theologians for decades, including the nature of truth, God, the historical reliability of the Bible, evidence for Christ’s resurrection, the historical Jesus, and the case for Christ’s second coming. In addition, former Muslim turned Christian theologian, Ergun Caner, will lecture on “Why I Am A Christian.”

The president of Veritas seminary, Joseph Holden, was asked why the school was sponsoring such a conference. He replied: “Unlike many of the eastern religions, which frown upon rational justification for belief, Christianity has always been a reasonable faith supported by historical, archaeological, philosophical and biblical evidence. This gathering will demonstrate that it takes more faith to be a non-Christian than it does to receive Christ. In Christianity, there is simply no basis on which to check our minds at the door.”

Normally, conferences of this magnitude require a facility that seats up to 10,000 to 20,000 people, however, the conference has adopted a smaller, intimate setting in Diamond Bar that seats 2,200.

The popularity of the event is evident, since it is drawing spectators from all over the country and as far away as Germany and Brazil.
