Call for papers 2014

Dear Members,

We are very excited about the upcoming conference on April 4th-6th, 2014 at Calvary Chapel South Denver, 9052 W. Ken Caryl Ave., Littleton, CO 80128.

We invite all members and prospective members to submit paper proposals for this year’s conference. Presenters are encouraged to consider topics pertaining to our theme, The Apologetic of the Family. With the traditional biblical concept of the family under increasing attack, we need to learn to present it in a positive light to a culture that has largely forgotten it and is increasingly prejudiced against it. However, the conference is not limited to dealing with this topic alone. Paper proposals may be accepted from areas within philosophy, theology, biblical studies, ethics, comparative religion, science, and history.

The minimum requirements for presenters are:

1. They must have paid their dues for membership in the Society.

2. They must have a Master's degree to present a paper. Or, they must co-present a paper with a person that has a Master's degree or higher.

3. They must submit prior to their paper being accepted:

1) A clear thesis statement; 2) Title of the paper; 3) Abstract for the paper.

4. Topics relative to the theme are encouraged, but other topics will be considered.

All paper proposals should be submitted to Donald T. Williams, dtw@tfc.edu, no later than  February 15, 2014. Please include your title, 100-200 word abstract, list of earned degrees, and membership status.

Please note that all presenters will need to register for the conference and either renew their annual fees or join the society if not already a member. Information for paying membership dues  can be found on the front page of our website (www.isca-apologetics.org).

Please feel free to contact Khaldoun Sweis, ksweis@ccc.edu, with any membership questions, or Donald T. Williams, dtw@tfc.edu, if you have any questions pertaining to the conference or paper proposals.

Sincerely,
Donald T. Williams
Conference Coordinator
