The Francis Schaeffer Institute welcomes Dr. John Dickson for a special series of engaging lectures and discussions. Starting out as a professional singer-songwriter, Dr. Dickson now works as an author, speaker, historian, senior pastor, and media presenter. He has published 15 books—including A Doubter’s Guide to the Christian Faith—two of which have become television documentaries, with a third due for release in March 2018. He teaches a course on the Historical Jesus at the University of Sydney, Australia, and researches the origins of Christianity in the Roman empire. For 2017–18 he is also a Visiting Academic in the Faculty of Classics at Oxford University in the UK. The aim of all he does is to be a public advocate for the Christian faith in secularizing times.
Cost: FREE! Bring your friends and join us in welcoming Dr. Dickson to Covenant.
