I had the honor this past weekend of serving as the keynote speaker at an apologetics conference in Ephrata, PA. My presentation was titled, “Artistry & Architecture in the Sacred Scriptures: An Introduction to the Beauty and Impact of Biblical Literary Structure.”
My breakout session was titled, “Structure and Meaning in the Biblical Text: More Examples of How Biblical Literary Structure Communicates Theological Meaning.” It was a thrill to join two other speakers, one of whom I used to work with at our seminary. Their topics included the resurrection of Christ, intelligent design, and a defense of signs and wonders in the early church. I was heartened by the interest level in these subjects as indicated by the wonderful turnout both Friday night and all day Saturday.
Below is the PowerPoint file from my keynote presentation and the handout from my breakout session. Neither reflects the range, depth, and fun we had in these sessions, but perhaps there is something here that will interest and/or inspire you.
