DIG & DELVE is a humble Apologetics Conference that strives to present different views with the utmost respect and provides a place for Christians and non-Christians to ask honest questions of each other and of some of todays finest minds.
I Can't Believe the Bible Because...
Dig & Delve 2016 will explore some common objections to the credibility of the Bible. Perhaps you or someone you know can’t believe in the Bible because…
…It promotes genocide and Holy wars
…there are too many convenient mythical stories
…it is filled with laws that even Christians ignore
…it promotes polygamy
…it teaches human sacrifice
…the God of the Bible is too angry and too violent
…women are treated as second-class citizens
Come and learn from leading Biblical scholars and apologists how to understand these objections to the Bible’s credibility.

The Dig and Delve conference helped me to uncover and test some assumptions that I didn’t even realize I had. It was beneficial to have an engaging conference that allowed me to be open with myself and think about why I believe what I believe.

I really enjoyed the 2014 Dig and Delve conference on the validity of the New Testament! Exploring the cultural context of the 1st century and the literary devices the Biblical writers would have used has helped me better understand the New Testament and the so-called discrepancies between different books and texts. As a student who has never studied theology or analyzed the bible as intentionally as some of the other attendees, the talks were both accessible and thought-provoking.
