Nancy Pearcey - September 23, 2018
"Defending Sexual Truth in a Secular Age"
Engaging the Culture is a lecture series established to offer to our body and the community knowledgeable speakers who bring awareness and insight into the challenges of our changing world from a Christian perspective. Past participants in the series include Robert Cochran, Robert George, Allan Carlson, Christopher Tollefsen, and Robert Linder.
This year’s guest speaker is Nancy R. Pearcey, hailed by The Economist as “America’s pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.” She currently serves as professor of apologetics and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University. Pearcey is the author of, among other books, Total Truth and The Soul of Science. Her most recent volume is the widely praised Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality (Baker Books, 2018).
Professor Pearcey will examine worldviews underlying hot button issues such as abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, and the hookup culture on Sunday evening, September 23, 2018, at Cornerstone Presbyterian Church. The program will commence at 6:30 with her presentation followed by a Q&A period. At 8:30 the program will conclude with a reception, during which Professor Pearcey will be available to sign copies of Love Thy Body.
