Join us at 12pm ET for an ESN Conversation on Dawn, A Proton's Tale of All That Came to Be with Cees Dekker. Combining its authors' scientific knowledge, storytelling skills, and insights from theology, Dawn provides a fresh look at the fundamentals of cosmology, evolutionary biology, and the good news of God in one overarching adventure—in the form of a gripping story. If you love both science and Scripture, you will discover an engaging, thought-provoking tale that reminds us we each have a big place in God's plan of creation—even if we're very, very small.

Join us on Zoom at 1pm ET for a conversation with Trevin Wax, author of The Thrill of Orthodoxy. Dorothy L. Sayers once asserted that “the dogma is the drama.” Every generation faces the temptation to wander from orthodoxy—to seek out the jolt that comes with false teaching, and to drift with cultural currents. And so every generation must be awakened again to the thrill of orthodoxy, and experience the astonishment that comes from stumbling afresh upon the electrifying paradoxes at the heart of the Christian faith.

From December 1941 until October 1942, the BBC broadcast a series of radio dramas written by Dorothy L. Sayers. In a new critical and annotated edition of “The Man Born to Be King,” scholar Kathryn Wehr brings fresh insights to the plays, their background, Sayers’ creative process, and the ongoing significance of the life of Christ today. Listen again, or for the first time, to the story of the man who was born to be—and still is—king. We hope to see you over winter break for this intriguing conversation. Click here to learn more and register.
