Schedule


Monday, March 13

6:30PM Love Thy Body
Pearcey examines the dehumanizing worldview that is driving today's most prominent issues such as abortion, homosexuality, and transgenderism, and argues that Christianity is holistic, sustaining the dignity of the body and biology.

7:30PM Q & A, followed by book signing

Tuesday, March 14

9:00AM Total Truth
Pearcey explains the fact/value divide that is used to marginalize Christianity to the private sphere, equipping Christians to interact in the public sphere.

10:00AM Transgender, Transreality
A deep dive into the transgender topics discussed in Love Thy Body: Pearcey critically explains the underpinnings of the self-alienation that has gripped young people who feel that their body and inner self are at war. She also shows how to craft a biblically informed response that affirms a holistic view of the person and the value of the body.

11:00AM The Toxic War on Masculinity (In-person only, no livestream available)
Pearcey will lead us on a fascinating excursion through history to discover why the script for masculinity turned toxic—and how to fix it. She then turns to surprising findings from sociology to show that committed Christian men are the most loving and engaged husbands and fathers—a finding that has stood up to rigorous empirical testing.

12:00PM Lunch available for purchase (must register by March 6)
