Bethel Church will host its ninth annual Christian Thought Forum, Oct. 25 (6 p.m. to 9 p.m.) and Oct. 26 (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.).
Each year, the forum features leading Christian thinkers addressing some of the most challenging intellectual and cultural issues facing Christians. This year's speakers are Corey Miller and Peter Kupisz. Topics they will address are Christianity and science, evolution, Mormonism, and reclaiming the university.
Corey Miller is the president of Ratio Christi, an apologetics-evangelism ministry encouraging and strengthening the faith of Christian students, and offering a Christian intellectual voice, at 180 universities around the world (https://ratiochristi.org/). Miller grew up in Utah as a seventh generation Mormon, but came to Christ in 1988 and has since authored and edited several books, including Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed Their Minds and Is Faith in God Reasonable?: Debates in Philosophy, Science, and Rhetoric. He has taught nearly 100 college courses in philosophy, theology, rhetoric, and comparative religions at various places (Purdue, Indiana University, Multnomah University, and Ecola Bible College). Dr. Miller holds masters degrees in philosophy, biblical studies, and in philosophy of religion and ethics. His Ph.D. is in philosophical theology from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.
Peter Kupisz is a Christian apologist with Power to Change Ministries (otherwise known as Cru, or Campus Crusade for Christ) in Toronto, Canada. He's also the founder of Worldview Summit (http://www.worldviewsummit.org/about/). Kupisz has an M.A. in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Biola University and an M.A. in the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology from the University of Toronto. He has taught classes at Biola University and Dongju College in South Korea, and speaks regularly on campuses and to churches.
