The ISCA fulfills a longfelt need to have an academically-oriented society that brings together conservative Christian scholars from a variety of fields engaged in the task of apologetics. Apologetics, from Greek (apologia) "to defend", is the discipline of defending a position (in our case the historic Christian Faith) through the systematic use of reason.
The ISCA holds an annual meeting in the spring and publishes a printed journal.
The purpose of the Society is stated in the bylaws as:
"To foster scholarly discussion of ideas among evangelical scholars relevant to the defense of the historic Christian Faith in accordance with the Doctrinal Statement of the Society." The Society also provides encouragement and fellowship for scholars across the disciplines working to underscore the truth of Bible-based Christian belief, as they seek to strengthen the Church in its task of upholding the Saviorhood and Lordship of Jesus Christ.
With the gracious efforts of ISCA Past President Kerby Anderson and ISCA Vice President William Roach, we have secured a venue for our annual meeting. On March 24-25, 2017, ISCA will be meeting at The Hope Center (http://www.thehopecenter.org), in Plano, TX (Dallas area).
“The Hope Center is a one-of-a-kind ministry home to over 40 Christian nonprofits. ... Our mission impact powerfully extends beyond our four walls. Our Christian Nonprofits are the physical hands and feet of the body of Christ sharing the gospel to people locally and around the world — every single day” (from The Hope Center website). With the tremendous experience we had the last time ISCA was at The Hope Center, it is a privilege to return.
Be sure to reserve the date and plan now to attend.
Ticket cost is $40 through March 20, then $50 thereafter.
It is FREE to pre-register today. All money will be collected at the door. Pre-registration is a $10 discount.
