Episode 162 Apologetics in Strasbourg France

Episode 162 Apologetics in Strasbourg, France with Craig Parton

A few years ago David Fleming, the executive director of the Lanier Foundation, and Mark Lanier signed an agreement to host annually the John Warwick Montgomery Lecture in Evidential Apologetics. 

Along the way we have become acquainted with the International Academy of Apologetics, Evangelism, and Human Rights.  One of the instructors for that summer academy is Craig Parton.

Who Is Craig Parton?

Craig Parton lives in California.  He became a Christian in college and developed interest early in apologetics.  He is now a trial lawyer, but he spends a lot of time as the US Director for the International Academy of Apologetics. 

What Is the Apologetics Academy?

Twenty-six years ago Craig Parton and John W. Montgomery (JWM) started the Apologetics Academy in Strasbourg, France. 

Every year they train around twenty men and women in apologetics, situated in one of the most historic and beautiful European cities. 

The academy lasts about two weeks.  It is intentionally small to in order to facilitate conversation, discussion, questions, and community.  To learn more about the academy:

The cost for the experience and learning is very reasonable.  Accommodations are included.  Some scholarships are available as well. Look for the brochure on the website for details and registration.
