The Book of Revelation and Global Crisis: Learning to Hope During a Pandemic Apocalypse
March 31, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
A Lecture by J. David Franks, Ph.D.
The world is gripped by tribulation now. Apocalyptic prophecy provides guidance on how to live well despite death’s dominion. How might Christian disciples cultivate hope in the world and in our children? The culminating vision of Scripture reveals how the ever-greater Trinitarian love is mediated into the battleground world with our battleground hearts.
