About This Workshop

In this talk, I offer a defense as to why Christians, especially evangelicals, should read closely and even prayerfully the pagan literature of the Greeks and Romans. I argue that Christianity is not the only truth, but the only complete truth, and that fragments of God’s Truth can therefore be found in pre-Christian literature that point forward to the coming (and full) revelation of Christ, the Bible, and the Church. I back up these claims by considering the journey of the Magi, Paul’s speech at the Areopagus (Acts 17), and Jesus’ answer to a group of pagan seekers (John 12)
