Registration is filling up for the first Greater Washington Women’s Apologetics Conference, “Conversations that Count,” with Oxford Apologist Amy Orr-Ewing, on January 22-23, 2016. The event is sponsored by the C.S. Lewis Institute and will be held at Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church in Annandale, VA.
“Conversations that Count” will help women at whatever stage or position in life (single, married, divorced, with kids, without kids, working in the business world, government, military or inside the home or both) to thoughtfully share their faith and give reasonable answers for what they believe to their colleagues in the workplace, friends in the neighborhood, children or family members. This conference led by gifted women apologists will explore the unique challenges faced by Christian women and will include the following topics: Faith and Truth, Why Trust the Bible, How Can God Allow Suffering?, Evidences for God, Is Christianity Oppressive or Liberating for Women?
Amy is the Europe/Middle East Director for RZIM, and Director of Programs for the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA). She has written two books exploring key questions in apologetics: Why Trust the Bible? and But Is It Real?. Her most recent publication is Millennials, which she co-authored with her husband Frog. They have also published Holy Warriors: A Fresh Look at the Face of Extreme Islam and Deep. She has contributed to the books Beyond Opinion, God and the Generations and Worth Knowing: Wisdom for Women.
Amy speaks and lectures on Christian Apologetics worldwide, at events such as Keswick and Alpha International, and on University campuses including Oxford, Cambridge, Vienna, and Hong Kong. Amy has been invited to speak in the White House, and on Capitol Hill, as well as the Speakers Rooms in the UK Parliament. Amy and her husband Frog lead a church in Buckinghamshire called Latimer Minster, which they planted in 2010.
Emceeing this event will be Jana Harmon, a Christian apologist who is a Teaching Fellow for C.S. Lewis Institute Atlanta. Jana is completing her doctoral work at the University of Birmingham in England, researching the dynamics involved when atheists come to faith in Christ.
We look forward to seeing you at “Conversations that Count!”
