The Lamb Who Reigns
Pre-Conference Round Table Discussion with George Grant, Keith Mathison, Michael Morales, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul, and R.C. Sproul Jr.
This pre-conference conversation on Christianity and Culture will consider the nature, the scope, and the glory of the reign of Christ over all things. We will consider if and how the authority He has been given in heaven differs from the authority He has been given on earth, and how His church is called to manifest His reign over all things.

A Rekindled Flame: The Reformation’s Rediscovery of God
Saturday, September 22 2012
|9:00 a.m.||10:10 a.m.||
Inklings of Wonder
This talk will explore the great British Christian tradition of defending the permanent things, and how this in turn has spawned God-honoring literature that explores and recovers wonder as the only appropriate response to His glory.
|10:10 a.m.||11:00 a.m.||
God in a Book
Reformed people are often accused of putting “God in a box.” This talk will explore how the Bible doesn’t limit our view of God but expands it, and how sundry methodologies such as Eastern prayer practices, Charismatic extremes, and others actually diminish God rather than exalt His transcendence.
|11:30 a.m.||12:20 p.m.||
The Call to Wonder
Jesus encourages us to become like children in order to inherit God’s Kingdom. This session will explore the Bible’s call that we be like children, examining the childlike qualities that please God and give us joy.
|R.C. Sproul Jr.|
|2:20 p.m.||3:20 p.m.||
Q & A
George Grant, Stephen Nichols, Michael Morales, R.C. Sproul, and R.C. Sproul Jr.
|3:20 p.m.||4:10 p.m.||
This talk will explore how God’s glory is made manifest throughout the Bible, looking into Shekinah as a recurring Biblical theme. It will suggest that God’s people then, as now, forget that He is not a Tame Lion, and that in His grace He reminds us of the eternal weight of His glory.
|4:45 p.m.||5:35 p.m.||
The Eclipse of God
This lecture will consider how modernism gave us a tame deist god, and then discarded him and how theological liberalism followed close behind. It will argue that within and without the church we seek to diminish God’s glory in the pursuit of our own.
