Academy - October 17, 2014

Join us on Friday, October 17 at 7:30 p.m. when Professor Kenneth Samples begins a new Academy series entitled: If I Had Lunch with St. Augustine.  This week Prof. Samples will discuss Augustine’s Intellectual & Spiritual Pilgrimage.

The last and greatest of the men revered as the “Church Fathers” was Augustine of Hippo or “St. Augustine” (A.D. 354-430). Though Christianity has produced many prominent thinkers during the past two millennia, Augustine may be the mostinfluential Christian thinker of all time outside of the New Testament. Hissignificant influence, especially on Western Christianity, is directly tied to his profound work as a theologian, philosopher, apologist, and church bishop.

If you had lunch with the bishop, what would you ask him? What would you want to know about a man who was a great sinner who became a great saint?

This series of lectures will examine some of the key events in Augustine’s extraordinary life as well as explore his most important books, ideas, and accomplishments.

Textbook: Augustine, Confessions, trans. R. S. Pine-Coffin (New York: Penguin, 1961).

Men's Book Club Resumes on Saturday, October 4

On Saturday, October 4, the Men's Book Club will continue their discussion of Francis Schaeffer's "Trilogy" - a collection of three of his most foundational books bound in one. For our October meeting, we'll be reading from The God Who is There, Section II., Chapters 1-5 (this is found on pgs. 51-90).

[Note: If you own The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, the page numbers for volume 1 are basically the same as the Trilogy. Feel free to read and bring either copy for our meetings.]

Come join us for a great time of fellowship and discussion as we learn about the intellectual and cultural climate of this present age and see how the Christian faith challenges the "wisdom of the world" so prevalent around us!

We continue to meet at the home of Bob and Adriana Reeves starting at 6:00pm.
