will host the following conference on Saturday, June 7, 2008…
“Upholding Biblical Inerrancy in Our Time”
Catholics Defending Biblical Inerrancy and Traditional Biblical Scholarship (CDBI)is a group of scholars, clergy and lay, who meet periodically to address the crucial topic of Sacred Scripture’s freedom from all error and related issues. CDBI employs the best contemporary Biblical scholarship in light of Tradition; with fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Devotion to the Church Fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas are two hallmarks of CDBI. Please join our fourth conference. Audio recordings will be undertaken for the day’s presentations.
