Christian/Atheist Dialogue in Chicago

For those of you in Chicago, I’ll be doing a Christian/atheist dialogue with the good people at Elements[Chicago] in a couple weeks.

It’ll be a chance for Christians and atheists to ask questions about faith — via moderator — to me and a Christian from their side. It’s not a debate; it’s a conversation. Fun!

The details:

Where: Flourish Studio, 3020 N. Lincoln, Chicago, Illinois 60657

When: Wednesday, June 23rd at 7:30 p.m. (It’ll probably go till 9:00 p.m.)

The event is free, there will be appetizers and wine, and you know you have challenging questions you want to ask. So come!

    I like the idea of conversation, which seems to be more about increasing understanding rather than winning an argument.

  • T Ray

    It is hard not to be competitive when sharing conflicting points of view. If I were confronted with a new argument in a debate I would have a responsibility refute it (directly or indirectly) or ignore it. The noble and honest thing to do would be to admit you would like to give the new idea some time and consideration rather than just refuting it out of hand.

    I’m sure a lot of people will view this event as a less formal debate.

    Are you planning to record it for those who can’t come?

  • @Catinthewall — Not sure about recording, but I’m sure something similar will happen again soon 🙂

  • I’ll be there!

  • You may say that it isn’t a debate and they may say that it isn’t a debate, but it is still a debate. Christians are going to ask you questions and you will be expected to have answers. You need to prepare for this “discussion” as if it were a debate.
