Training Seminar

Phil Kayser gives a PowerPoint presentation describing the difference between typical secular history, typical Christian history, and Providential history. The marriage of King Henry VIII to Ann Boleyn is examined from these three perspectives, followed by an analysis of ten presuppositions that drive providential history. This is the first of several training seminars designed to help people get more comfortable with providential history so they’ll be equipped and excited to enter their own projects in the Festival.
