Peter Kreeft is coming!

Dr. Peter Kreeft will be coming to give three talks February 4-5, 2011 to benefit Elijah School.  Peter Kreeft teaches philosophy at Boston College and King’s College (NYC), and is the author of more than 50 books.  Many of his works are not just about C.S. Lewis, but are very much in the tradition of Lewis’ own works.  Though a scholar, Peter Kreeft’s style of speaking is warm, witty, and accessible to everyone. 

On Friday evening, February 4, Dr. Kreeft will be speaking at the Milburn Stone Theater at Cecil College on Jesus-Shock, the reception Jesus received both in His lifetime and continuously to the present time, not only from His enemies, but from His friends, a reception of shock, astonishment, even disgust. Imagine a storm has downed a telephone wire so that everyone who touches it is shocked in every cell of his body. Well, the storm of God’s crazy love has “downed” (incarnated) Jesus, and everyone who touches this “live wire” is shocked in every cell of his being.  The talk will be followed by Q&A.  Tickets are $15 and all proceeds benefit Elijah School, a 501(c)3 non-profit.

On saturday morning February 5 at 10:00am Dr. Kreeft will be speaking about a problem that plagues many Christians (and even agnostics): Discerning God’s Purpose and Plan for Your Life.  Dr. Kreeft believes strongly in the value and beauty of every life and mind and that our duty is to find what God wants us to do with the gifts He has given us.   Q&A will follow.   Tickets are $15 and all proceeds benefit Elijah School, a 501(c)3 non-profit.

Saturday afternoon at 2:00pm Dr. Kreeft will be speaking about common sense in the national abortion debate, specifically The Apple Argument (which has little to do with fruit!)  In the wake of the recent dreadful stories concerning abortion in Elkton, Christians should be prepared to talk about abortion in irrefutable common sense terms which is the point of this lecture (followed by Q&A).  Tickets are $15 and all proceeds benefit Elijah School, a 501(c)3 non-profit.

Please come and join us for all three talks!  Contact us if you have any questions -
