GENESIS: Fact, Fiction, or What?

Saturday, March 23, 2019
9:00am - 2:30pm
Peninsula Bible Fellowship

You are invited to a one-day event with prominent author, professor, and scholar of Old Testament, Dr. John Walton. Dr. Walton currently teaches at Wheaton College in Chicago. Prior to that, he was a professor at Moody Bible Institute for 20 years. He specializes in the Ancient Near Eastern context of the Old Testament with a particular focus on the book of Genesis. He is a prolific author of many important books including several important biblical commentaries.

Come learn, engage, and consider what it means to take Genesis seriously. There will be three sessions, each followed by a Q&A (see tentative schedule below).

Important considerations:

  • This event is FREE, but requires an RSVP
  • The event runs from 9:00am - 2:30pm (with a break for lunch)
  • There is an option to pre-order on-site lunch (pre-order online only until March 20)
  • There is no child care available (given the length of the event)
  • This event is geared towards adults and high-school students
