Dr. Frank Turek to Help Christians Pursue a ‘Faith That Thinks’ at Apologetics Conference
CrossExamined.com Founder Part of Well-Known Lineup of Speakers at Southern Evangelical Seminary’s 24th Annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics in October
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—There’s nothing “politically correct” about defending your faith. And Christians who want to fill their toolbox with ways to share their beliefs in today’s culture rely on Frank Turek for some of the tools.
Turek will be a featured speaker in October at the 24th annual Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, www.ses.edu) National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA), which will focus on the timely theme of “Pursuing a Faith That Thinks.”
“For 25 years, Southern Evangelical Seminary has been educating Christians about how to best defend their beliefs,” said SES President and Evangelical leader Dr. Richard Land. “And for 24 of those 25 years, the National Conference on Christian Apologetics has brought together some of the greatest minds in the country to delve deeply into the issues every Christian must consider. We are honored to again welcome Frank Turek to our impressive lineup of speakers. Frank is an SES graduate and adjunct professor and has helped many young apologists over the years shape their own faith and their own system of defending their beliefs.”
Turek is a dynamic speaker and award-winning author or co-author of “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist,” “Correct, Not Politically Correct,” “Legislating Morality” and “Stealing From God.” As the president of CrossExamined.org, Turek impacts young and old alike at colleges, high schools and churches with hard, yet entertaining evidence for Christianity. He hosts an hour-long TV program each week called “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist” on NRBTV. His radio program, called “CrossExamined with Frank Turek,” airs on 144 stations.
Turek also writes a column for Townhall.com and has appeared on many TV and radio programs including: “The O’Reilly Factor,” “Hannity and Colmes,” “Faith under Fire,” “Politically Incorrect” and “Focus on the Family.” He debated atheist Christopher Hitchens twice. A former Aviator in the U.S. Navy, Turek has a master’s degree from George Washington University and a doctorate in apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary.
Turek will address attendees twice at SES’s apologetics conference on Oct. 13-14 at Calvary Church in Charlotte, N.C. One of the largest events of its kind, the two-day conference will delve into the headline-making topics impacting the culture today. Besides Turek and Land, other NCCA speakers include Michael Brown, Gary Habermas, Ken Ham, Greg Koukl, J. P. Moreland, Jay Richards, Hugh Ross and J. Warner Wallace, as well as SES co-founder Norman Geisler, who co-authored two books with Turek.
At the SES conference, the American Family Association will also debut its new film “The God Who Speaks” as a powerful feature-length documentary that explores the evidence of the Bible’s inspiration and authority through some of the most highly respected voices within evangelicalism, including Turek and Geisler. The film answers some common objections to Christianity, observes the effects of denying biblical authority and intends to reveal the trustworthiness of the Bible’s claims. A tool to use for decades to come, “The God Who Speaks” will help many of today’s biblically illiterate Christians defend their faith in a culture that is often hostile to Christianity.
