Bart Ehrman vs Craig Evans at Acadia University

Another great debate is coming up.  Dr. Ehrman, a former evangelical turned agnostic, is going head-to-head again with Dr. Craig Evans. This time at Acadia University and St. Mary’s University, in in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Ehrman and Evans are going to debate each other again for two days. They might be sick of each other at the end, or maybe, one might convert the other?…Not.  This should be interesting because they understand each other’s theology and points of view well.  Theological spars like this are interesting because when both hold strongly to their own convictions.  One might wonder why either do not come to the same conclusions.

Anyway, this will be very interesting. I wish I could be there myself, but unfortunately it’s way over in Atlantic Canada.  If you in Nova Scotia, check it out. [Tickets seem to be all gone now.  Maybe they’ll make the DVD or recording available online].  But there’s an “After the Debate will be held at Rock Church the next day, Saturday, Jan. 21 9:00-3:30PM.

Friday, January 20 at 7PM at Acadia University, and
Thursday, January 19 at 7PM at Mary’s University
Admission is FREE [SOLD OUT]

  1. I just talked to a friend who went to the St Mary’s debate tonight – he said neither of them expressed a belief in the Scriptures. Not quite sure what the debate is like then.

    1. It must have been for those with little theology a confusing debate. For those with formal theological training, there were some surprises. Ehrman
      appeared angry and defensive. Evans clearly won the debate based upon his style which was gracious, and his honest academic integrity.
