Mark your calendar today right now!

Have you ever wanted to get the chance to see Dr. Rosenbladt do a live presentation? Know anyone else who would? Well, now’s your chance. And, believe me, it doesn’t happen too often, so you usually want to jump at these opportunities when they occur.

You will also get to hear Craig Parton, Esq. Dr. Rosenbladt and Mr. Parton are the same team you’ve come to know and love from the The Gospel For Those Broken By The Church and Where in the Church is the Gospel? series produced by South Orange County Outreach (SOCO).

What am I talking about? Here are some tantalizing subjects which will be addressed:

  • Hear a Historical Defense of the Truth of the Christian Gospel
  • On What Basis Do You Claim That the Bible is True?
  • Does the New Testament allow for objective — NOT just subjective — testing as to whether it is true… or not? If “yes,” how?
  • If you think the New Testament writings are reliable, why do you?
  • Jesus: Myth, Legend or Historical Fact
  • I’ve heard that Christians can argue from an Incarnate Christ to a totally inspired Bible. Is this possible? How?

This event takes place in Tomball, TX. I know that can mean some serious travel arrangements for most of you, but what an opportunity!

Please note, though this is a free event, we recommend leaving a free will offering to help defray the costs to the church, and YOU MUST RSVP WITH THE CHURCH where this event is taking place before attending. They need to be prepared for how many attendees will be present and dining with them.

Presentations By:

Rev. Dr. Rod Rosenbladt – Professor of Theology and Christian Apologetics at Concordia University in Irvine, Ca. and Co-Host of the nationally syndicated radio broadcast of “White Horse Inn” which aims each week to equip Christians to “know what they believe and why they believe it.”

Attorney Craig Parton – A Christian layman using his training and God-given legal talent to help us see that the Bible is the true Word of God — even when tested by secular criteria. Mr. Parton received a Master’s degree in Apologetics under Dr. John Montgomery and his Juris Doctorate from Hastings Law School (San Francisco, Cal.). He is a former staff member of Campus Crusade for Christ, now a worshiping Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod layman.

Now, we couldn’t just let an opportunity like this pass US by, either, so NRP will be present at this event in order to record it and make Dr. Rosenbladt’s and Mr. Parton’s work available through our website.

Please take a look at your schedule and see if you can attend. We can’t recommend it enough. It’s on a Friday night and Saturday morning/afternoon, so you wouldn’t even have to take much time off from work!

But, just in case you can’t make it, we will be making the recordings available here, so you won’t be left out in the cold.

If there are any updates or changes to the above information, we will update this post and send a notice out via our Twitter account.
