The Center for Applied Christian Ethics (CACE) is one of my favorite teaching forums in America. It is connected to Wheaton College and led by Dr. Vincent E. Bacote, a member of the Bible and Theology faculty at Wheaton. Vince has spoken for ACT 3 several times and is deeply rooted in the theology of Abraham Kuyper. He is also a wonderfully gracious Christian man who understands how to conduct a civil and meaningful dialogue. This makes him a perfect choice to lead CACE at this time.
On Thursday, September 3, CACE will host a debate on the question: "Catholic and Evangelical?" The speakers are two of my favorite people to discuss this subject intelligently and irenically. Dr. Francis Beckwith, formerly an evangelical and now a Roman Catholic, will speak on: "Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic." Dr. Timothy George, a great Reformation scholar and dear friend, will speak on: "Confessions of a Catholic Evangelical." Then the debate will follow their presentations. Vincent Bacote informed me this week that the location and time are not yet determined. I will say more when the details are known. For now, I suggest that those who live in the Chicago area mark this date and join me for the CACE debate with these two superb Christian scholars.
