CBE President's Speaking Engagements

April 15, 2016 - April 15, 2016
Join Mimi Haddad at the Denver Seminary for a complimentary lunch and a lecture on "Is an Omni-Male Deity the God of Scripture?" in the Executive Board Room, Anita Graber Building.  Throughout history, Christians have be swayed by philosophical currents that impute masculine gender as part of God’s being. More recently, evangelicals have argued for the “masculine feel” of Christianity—a current that informs and influences the mission of the church today. This lecture will consider these forces and its impact. For more information, please contact hanson139@comcast.net.

The lecture will be held at Cornell Law School in Room 182.

CBE’s president, Dr. Mimi Haddad, will discuss how the early evangelicals were quintessential social reformers and we have them to thank for abolition and suffrage. After decades of exposing the sex industry, the early evangelicals believed that their efforts, though necessary, would inevitably fail without addressing the root causes that were continually overlooked. These Christians perceived an integral relationship—an inescapable link—between viewing females as inferior and their subsequent marginalization and abuse. This lecture will consider the history of the early evangelicals and their reforming work biblically and socially. This event will start at 6:30pm and ends at 8:00pm.
