Local author Gregory Van Dussen speaks on 'Transfiguration and Hope' at Batavia First Presbyterian Church
Author Gregory Van Dussen, Ph.D., will speak about hope, your future and more on Thursday, March 21 at Batavia First Presbyterian Church.
This is a literary evening event that offers the gift of hope and is intended to nourish your mind and broaden your vision for life. It is open to the public and free to attend.
Time is 7 to 8:30 p.m. The church is located at 300 E. Main St. in Batavia.
Van Dussen's new book is called "Transfiguration and Hope: A Conversation Across Time and Space," published by Wipf and Stock.
He asks: "When you think of the future, your future, how far does it go? What are your greatest hopes? What is God hoping for you? Why does Jesus' life, death and resurrection offer you hope?
"What do you hope your life will be like five years from now? What about 10 years from now? 20? 50? 100? What is the way to heaven? Do you envision eternal life?"
The author reminds us that there is an event in the New Testament that (literally) sheds light on those questions. The Transfiguration of Christ taught Peter, James and John more than they had ever known about Him. Did the Transfiguration also tell them more than they could ever "ask or imagine" about themselves (Ephesians 3:20 NIV,NRSV)? About you?
Copies of the new book will be available and Van Dussen will be happy to sign your book. They are also available for sale at the Holland Land Office Museum on Main Street in Batavia and can be ordered in paperback, hardback and electronic formats from Amazon.
