You are invited to join us for GOD in the MODERN WORLD: A CHRISTIAN-ATHEIST DIALOGUE
Is there room for God in the modern world? Or is belief in God a relic of the past?
In this discussion, Christian theologian Randal Rauser and atheist Justin Schieber share very different views about the meaning and relevance of God for the modern age.
This event is part of the “Crucial Conversations Series”, which aims to host uncommon discussion about challenging topics that are friendly, engaging and substantive. We hope you will join us for this free event to hear from our presenters, ask your own questions, and to engage other attendees in respectful dialogue.
This event is co-presented by the E P Wahl Centre, the continuing education ministry of Taylor, along with the Society for Edmonton Atheists. There is no charge to attend, and light refreshments will be offered following the event.
