Defending the Theistic Interpretation of Logos and Theos in John's Gospel Prologue


  Unfortunately, Dr. Rana's excellent talk on "Humans 2.0: Transhumanism and the Gospel" failed to record due to technical difficulties. In lieu of that, some of his previous talks on the subject may be found here.


  Dan Guinn's breakout session talk on "Francis Schaeffer on Apologetics in Dystopia" was recorded but isn't available quite yet. We'll add it to the playlist when it debuts. Until then, his paper is available here and has also been submitted for consideration for the ISCA journal. 
    If anyone presented a paper at the 2023 meeting and would like the chance to re-present it on Teams or Zoom for an ISCA audience and record it for the ISCA YouTube channel, let us know.  
    Everyone who presented a paper at the 2023 is encouraged to submit their paper to the ISCA journal editor for queuing into our peer review process and consideration for inclusion in either the 2023 or 2024 editions of the ISCA journal. More info at

The 2024 meeting of the ISCA is tentatively set for April 5-6 in San Diego, California. Please pencil it in on your calendars and expect another newsletter in late July with the announcement!

The date of the publishing of the 2023 volume of the ISCA journal has not been finalized yet either. We have twenty or so papers submitted to the peer review team for consideration for inclusion in the 2023 or 2024 editions of the journal. It's not too late for ISCA members to submit a paper or book review.  More info at Previous editions of the journal are available to ISCA members on our website and printed versions may be ordered from Amazon

We're getting serious about a revamp of the website and newsletter system. This website was designed about ten years ago and a new prototype is being developed. As you can probably tell from the strange formatting of this newsletter, the newsletter system is a bit unweildy to use. We may switch to Mailchimp or one of its competitors and, if so, you'll have the options to opt in and out easily.  

Donald T. Williams (EFCA ordained, Trinity MDiv, UGA PhD, former pastor, now Professor Emeritus of Toccoa Falls College and Lecturer for Summit Ministries and Church Planting International, author of fourteen books ) has retired (congratulations!!!) and is available as a freelancer for "Pulpit Supply, Bible Conferences, Apologetics Conferences, or Inklings Conferences for their church, school, or group." More at and You can hear two of his talks in the ISCA 2023 YouTube playlist and more on "C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Christian Apologetics, and what Lewis and Tolkien can contribute to our apologetic" on the Defend podcast.

Almost one full year after the overturn of Roe-v-Wade, Hendrik van der Breggen's book Untangling Popular Pro-Choice Arguments: Critical Thinking about Abortion may be a useful resource for this hot topic issue. Also be sure to check out his newest book APOLOGIA: The Columns: A Defence of Mere Christianity
