Eric Metaxas is the exciting speaker for the third annual Providence Hall Fall Forum. Metaxas was the keynote speaker at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., an event attended by the President and First Lady, and is gaining an audience across the country. He is the author of Amazing Grace, the biography of William Wilberforce, who successfully ended slavery in Great Britain, and also the recent New York Times #1 bestseller biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. A pacifist German pastor, Bonhoeffer was executed by Adolph Hitler two weeks before the end of the war.
Metaxas has written several other books and appears as a cultural commentator on CNN, the Fox News Channel, and NPR. He is host and founder of Socrates in the City, the acclaimed New York speakers’ series.
In a decidedly eclectic career, Metaxas has written for VeggieTales, Chuck Colson, and the New York Times. He might be described as “Woody Allen meets Billy Graham.” He brings humor to his presentations which speak boldly about the need to demonstrate greater personal courage in standing up for what is right and good, and against the forces that would destroy our nation and the world.
The purpose of the Fall Forum is to invite the community to join the independent, college preparatory school in “Engaging Ideas of Consequence.” This year’s event will be held Thursday evening, October 4, at the Doubletree Resort. In a departure from tradition, an array of desserts will be served instead of a full dinner, to the accompaniment of jazz piano music. Tickets are $100 each.
Eric Metaxas is no ordinary speaker and event organizers Amy Clark and Helene Winter promise this will be no ordinary event. You won’t want to miss Just Desserts and Just Jazz at the third annual Providence Hall Fall Forum.
Individuals and businesses interested in sponsoring the third annual Fall Forum are encouraged to contact Helene Winter at 805-569-2345. Three levels of sponsorship opportunities are available.
Tickets will go on sale in a few weeks. For more information, please call Providence Hall at 805-962-4400.
