Please note, our meeting will be held on Monday this week due to a special
presentation by Dr Valerie Tarico.
Time: Monday, 4pm - 6pm
Location: HUB 209A
Topic: How to use the Bible against Bible Believers
A belief that the Bible is literally perfect is the cornerstone of
fundamentalist Christianity. But the notion of Biblical "inerrancy" is also
one of Christianity's greatest vulnerabilities. What should you know about
the Bible when it's time to go head to head with Christian friends and
family members? Come hear what psychologist Valerie Tarico has to say.
Dr. Tarico is author of The Dark Side: How Evangelical Teachings Corrupt
Love and Truth. She hosts "Christianity in the Public Square," a monthly
series on Moral Politics Television. Raised in a fundamentalist family, Dr.
Tarico attended Wheaton College, where the Billy Graham Center houses a
museum dedicated to the history of American Evangelicalism. She obtained a
Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Iowa before completing
postdoctoral studies at the University of Washington. Now a psychotherapist
in Seattle, Dr. Tarico calls upon her scientific training, professional
experience, and background as a born-again Evangelical as she examines
crucial questions about religion in society. Her essays can be found at
I'm very excited to her Dr Tarico speak.
