Hollywood star Michael Douglas on Death

I read a fascinating interview with Michael Douglas about cancer, death etc in a German paper recently ... It once again made me realize that all the hard work for my PhD about belief in the resurrection of Jesus is probably still relevent ... even in Hollywood. One key text for my PhD is 1 Cor. 15:32:

If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die
εἰ νεκροὶ οὐκ ἐγείρονται, Φάγωμεν καὶ πίωμεν, αὔριον γὰρ ἀποθνῄσκομεν.

FAITH - fact or fiction? Dave Seaford in Pretoria, South Africa

Roedolf Botha, one of my fellow friends busy with a PhD in New Testament here in Nijmegen, has started an exciting new church in Pretoria, South Africa. One of their primary aims it seems, is to take the difficult questions believers and skeptics wrestle with quite seriously. On 31 July, they will host Dave Seaford who will talk on: FAITH - fact or fiction. It is worth checking out. Contact details on the picture.
