Cedarville University’s Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity will host the “God Revealed” apologetics conference on March 27. The conference, to take place in the Stevens Student Center event rooms and the Dixon Ministry Center chapel, is open to the public. No registration is required.
“Many Christians don't think deeply about the role of the Bible as it relates to the whole of life. Often Christians relegate it to personal devotional use and corporate worship,” explained Dr. Dan DeWitt, director of the Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity. “The Bible makes claims that demonstrate it is sufficient and authoritative for all of life, our vocation and our leisure. We hope this conference helps attendees better see life from a biblical worldview.”
The conference’s keynote speaker is Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. DeWitt has known Mohler both as a student at Southern Seminary while Mohler served as president and as a colleague while serving on Mohler’s executive cabinet.
“I could think of no one better suited to speak to this issue,” noted Dewitt. “'Time' magazine once called Mohler ‘the leading intellect among evangelicals in America.’ Mohler has a unique gift to help Christians understand contemporary challenges and respond from a biblical point of view. Our student body is going to love being under his teaching.”

Mohler’s keynote will focus on the way God has revealed himself in creation and in Scripture. Mohler will also discuss the relationship between what can be known about God in creation and the role of the Scriptures.
After Mohler’s keynote address, attendees will get to watch as Mohler records his podcast, “The Daily Briefing.” Mohler designed this podcast after stepping down from a nationally syndicated radio talk show because of the change in how people were accessing news. The podcast recorded at Cedarville will be published online the following morning.
The conference will end with an evening event called, “Ask Anything,” where Mohler will hold a question and answer time.
Although is no registration required, guests are encouraged to sign up for a backstage pass that costs $10. The backstage pass includes priority seating for the keynote address and the podcast session as well as a copy of the book “Standing for Truth,” containing a foreword written by Mohler.
