The Myth of Adolescence
In his book The Myth of Adolescence, Dave Black argues for a return to the ideals of a previous generation of Americans, who allowed youth to be relatively independent and gave them a real role in life. He believes that many of the problems we have with our youth and with preparing them for adulthood is that we do not give them enough independence and responsibility when they are younger.
Come, discuss this challenging and controversial thesis.
Are we stunting our young people’s growth before they’re even started?
1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
Why Four Gospels?
In his book Why Four Gospels?, soon to be reissued by Energion Publications, Dave Black argues for an intriguing approach to the development of the gospels. Rejecting the dominant position which places Mark as the first gospel, and depending on both internal testimony of the gospels themselves and that of the early church fathers, Dr. Black presents an alternative under-standing of why we have four gospels and how we got the four that we do have. A response will be provided by Dr Wesley Wachob, Senior Pastor of First United Methodist Church.
Book signing time will follow each session. Copies of The Myth of Adolescence will be available on the book table. There will be an opportunity to pre-order the new edition of Why Four Gospels? at a special pre-release price.
