If you are a college student and are a Christian you might want to consider going to Jubilee 2011 in Pittsburgh later this month. (February 18-20, 2011).
If you are going, I hope you will consider attending one of the history track presentations by yours truly.
I have not seen an official schedule other than this, but Bob Robinson has broken down the speakers into categories. You can find that here.
Here is a description of my two seminars:
Breakout Session One: The Power to Transform: How the Study of History Can Help You Grow Spiritually
Can the study of history transform our spiritual lives? How can the study of the past enable us to better love God and others? This session will discuss some the uses and misuses of the past among Christians today.
Breakout Session Two: Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?
Was America founded to be a Christian nation, as many evangelicals assert, or a secular state, as others contend? Does it really matter? This session will offer some suggestions for thinking thoughtfully and Christianly about this aspect of American history.
Hope to meet some of the readers of The Way of Improvement Leads Home at Jubilee! I also hear that there is a good chance that Byron Borger of Hearts and Minds Books will have copies of Was America Founded as a Christian Nation for sale. In fact, I may see the finished book for the first time at the conference!
