Back From Christian Worldview Conference

I highly recommend the annual Christian Worldview lectures held at the Schwan Center in Trego, WI every summer. It was a bit inconvenient to get to for me. I drove from Pittsburgh to Cleveland (to get a better flight) and flew into the Twin Cities. Then I rented a car and drove another 2 1/2 hours, in the pitch dark forests of nothern Wisconsin. But it was worth it.

The Schwan Center is a comfortable lodge surrounded by beautiful lakes and woods. I even saw a black bear. The food was exceptional. The speakers were scholarly and their presentations were very informative and beneficial.

If you have questions, put them in the comment box. Here is a brief summary of the lineup I enjoyed:

  • Monday - The Confessional and Biblical Worldview (6 hours) by Dr. David Jay Webber of the Lutheran seminary in the Ukraine

  • Tuesday - The Church and Science through the Ages: Seven Key Questions from the History of Science (2 hours) by Dr. Ryan MacPherson

  • Tuesday - The Purpose of Science: Sacred Cow or Sacred Calling? (2 hours) by Dr. Angus Menuge

    Tuesday - Teaching Objective Morality to a Postmodern Audience (2 hours) by Dr. MacPherson

  • Wednesday - The Crisis of the Constitution: From Biblical Absolutes to Evolutionary Humanism (2 hours) by Dr. John Eidsmoe

  • Thursday - The New Polytheism (3 hours) by Dr. Gene Edward Veith

  • Thursday - Dealing with Constructivism and Pantheism in School Textbooks (3 hours) by Dr. Allen Quist

  • Friday - Islam's Unrecognized Threat to Christianity and the West (2 hours) by Dr. Alvin Schmidt

  • Friday - Religions in America - Where Are We Going? (2 hours) by Dr. Mark Braun

    Friday - How Christianity Changed the World (2 hours) by Dr. Alvin Schmidt
