In what sense are (Roman) Catholics Evangelical and Evangelical (Protestants) Catholic? And assuming that we can agree upon an answer, what difference does it make for the millions of people–among them family members, neighbors, spouses, co-workers, professors, and classmates–who relate to each other across the Catholic/Protestant divide?

These questions will be addressed in the annual Penner Forum on Thursday, September 3, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. in Edman Chapel on the campus of Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. It is free and open to the public. For more information please call 630-668-0878.

Representing the Protestant side will be Dr. Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School and Executive Editor of Christianity Today.Representing the Roman Catholic side will be Dr. Francis Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies at Baylor University and author of Return to Rome: Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic. Chris Castaldo, pastor and author of Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic, will moderate.
