Pepperdine Bible Lectures are on the Horizon

Biblelectures1 The Pepperdine Bible Lectures are almost here. Pepperdine is one of, if not the spiritual highlight of my year.

This year, the theme is "The Lord of Creation:the Preeminence of Christ in Colossians." This is one of the first years where I've actually known all of the Keynote and Theme lecturers on the program.

  • Monte Cox – Funny, substantive, and always a thoughtful voice on missions and evangelism.
  • Rick Atchley – A great friend and mentor. I hear he can preach too 🙂
  • Rich Little – I've been a Rich Little fan from afar for some time. Great sense of humor.
  • Brian Simmons – a terrific communicator with great energy.
  • Curt Sparks – A classy veteran of ministry who is just one of the good guys.
  • Josh Ross – A great young guy–humble and gifted…one of the up-and-comers…5 years from now, he'll be one of the Church of Christ's top young leaders.
  • Mike Cope – A marvelous preacher…couldn't close any better than this.

I'm teaching a class on my forthcoming book entitled: Jesus: The Word Made Flesh. The book should be released in July by College Press/Heartspring. Consider this a shameless plug for my class and the book.

It's going to be a great week. If you're not going…REPENT!!!!

If you can't go, I'll be blogging and Twittering while I'm there. But, remember…Malibu in May is always better LIVE.
