CONTROVERSIAL YOUNG Northern Ireland theologian Pete Rollins will be a keynote speaker at the next National Christian Youth Convention (NCYC 2007).
Rollins believes the emerging church presents a singular, unprecedented opportunity to transform the theological and moral architecture of the Christian community.
Rollins’ recent book How (Not) to Speak of God is attracting interest world wide.
Author Brian McLaren describes himself as a “raving fan” of the book while Scot McKnight (also an author) says Rollin’s book is a “firestorm”.
“The book runs a mad dash from the borderline brilliant to the most challenging suggestions I’ve read in some time,” said McKnight.
Together with other speakers Tim Costello, Joyleen Koolmatrie and Queenslander Dave Andrews, NCYC 2007 delegates, volunteers and participants will have the opportunity to engage with Rollins as he speaks at the evening rallies, Bible studies and electives throughout the convention week.
NCYC will be held at Scotch College, Swanbourne W.A. from 3-9 January 2007. For more information visit the official website at http://agentsofchange.org.au or call the office on 1300 00 6292
