Wrestling with History: Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus

Christianity bears witness to historical events surrounding the life of Jesus of Nazareth – most centrally his resurrection from the dead. Whether Jesus rose from the dead is the chief historical question on which Christianity stands or falls.

What would happen if a historian investigated this question? Join us for an evening with UNC professor of history Dr. Molly Worthen as she shares the story of how she investigated the resurrection of Jesus and ended up converting to Christianity.

Renewing the Evangelical Imagination

We all imagine ourselves in stories, and see ourselves as living out a story. But are the stories we are living out true, good, and beautiful – do they line up with the true Story of the world that God tells in Scripture? How can we renew the evangelical imagination so that it aligns more with the gospel story, and not other merely cultural stories? Join us for an evening with groundbreaking author and scholar Dr. Karen Swallow Prior, and explore what it means to renew the evangelical imagination.
