David Wells at the National Founders Conference, June 26-29, 2007
Theologian and author, David Wells, will be the main speaker at this year's Founders Conference in Owasso, Oklahoma. The theme is "God's Truth Abideth Still: Confronting Postmodernism."
Few evangelicals have thought as deeply or written as carefully about postmodernism as Dr. Wells. His most recent book, Above All Earthly Powers, Christ in a Postmodern World, is the fourth and final installment of his ambitious and very helpful project to analyze the intersection of confessional Christianity and postmodernism. The first book of the series, No Place for Truth: or, Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology? (1993) is one of the most significant books to have appeared in the last half of the twentieth century. David Wells understands how the Gospel works and has courageously called evangelicals to return to and stand firm in that Gospel in the face of cultural sea changes.
This conference promises to be very instructive as well and encouraging. The fellowship, singing and teaching that take characterize the Founders Conference provide an opportunity to get your spiritual batteries recharged. I encourage you to join us for what promises to be a very beneficial few days together.
