Can You Be Catholic and Evangelical?: The Penner Foundation Dialogue, September 3, 2009, at Wheaton College (The Video)

Last Thursday, September 3, I participated in a public dialogue with my friend Timothy George, Dean of the Beeson Divinity School at Samford University (Birmingham, Alabama). Entitled, "Can You Be Catholic and Evangelical?," it took place at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. A video of the event is now online. You can find it here.

There are many people that made this event possible, including my friend, Timothy George, who is an exemplar of deep learning and Christian charity. Another friend, Chris Castaldo, a pastor at College Church in Wheaton, did an outstanding job in moderating this dialogue. And if not for the generosity of the Penner family, this event would not have been possible. They deserve special thanks for their unyielding support of Wheaton's Christian mission. And, as has always been my experience at that institution, its leadership's professionalism and hospitality could not have been bettered. It was a delight to meet both President Duane Litfin as well as Dr. Vincent Bacote, Director of the Wheaton Center for Applied Christian Ethics, the academic unit that sponsored the event. Thank you.

Thanks Frank. It was a pleasure to serve with you. My only disappointment was learning that you don’t share my passion for eggplant and seafood. Thank God we still have linguini in common. God bless you and Frankie! Chris
