Why Do I Always Miss These Things?


This afternoon, my dad informed me of an upcoming debate involving Bart Ehrman and N.T. Wright. The debate is entitled, "A Good God? A Dialogue about the problem of Suffering and Evil." (I'd rather not call it a dialogue, as these men hold wildly divergent convictions on this issue and each presumably will - quite amicably - try to show the bankruptcy of the other's position). This debate is quite the tour de force. Wright is probably the most influential conservative scholar in the world, and Ehrman is arguably the most influential liberal scholar. Moreover the debate is right in my backyard. But alas, it's 40 bucks and it's tomorrow night, which means the chances of me going are slim. However, if any of you out in the blogosphere are going, let me know, and I'll try to make it.

They recently had brief interaction on the same topic, perhaps a precursor to this.

For anyone else who might have missed it, I have the full audio of the evening up at my site.

Truly a night to remember.

Grace and Peace,
