Table Talk #7: Evangelicalism and the Environment
a Table Talk with the Rev. Dr. Dan Brunner
Saturday, October 1, 2011
9:45 a.m. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ noon
George Fox Evangelical Seminary, Room 285
Creation care has often been a ‘tough sell’ within Christianity in general; it has been an even tougher sell within the broad Evangelical movement. During this table talk we will discuss such issues as the authority of Scripture (or, hermeneutics), the second coming of Christ (or, eschatology), conversion, and ecojustice. Is it even possible to build bridges with those more theologically conservative than we might be?
