2017 Conference Paper Submission Deadline

Because some members might have missed the deadline but are still desiring to submit a proposal to speak in a break-out session for the up-coming ISCA conference this March, I wanted to let you know that we have extended the proposal submission deadline until the end of January 21, 2017. Remember, all you need to submit is a brief abstract (a paragraph) describing your topic. Any topic related to apologetics is acceptable. As with the last email, I’ve included a FAQ about the conference. I hope you will consider participating!
