In today’s secularised culture, dinosaurs are often spoken of as monsters from ‘prehistory’. However, the Bible doesn’t speak of eras of time, millions of years long, before humankind existed—there never was a pre-history.
Even so, everyone is familiar with the idea of ‘prehistoric monsters’ roaming the earth in the so-called Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Dinosaurs, then, provide a wonderful opportunity to teach the true history of the world to young and old alike. That’s why we call them ‘Prehistoric’ Preachers.
Four ‘Prehistoric’ Preacher Dinosaur Roadshows are planned for 2017 (dates given below) and at least two of our five UK-based speakers will be involved in each event. They promise to be fascinating, informative and fun. Here are some of things you can expect:
A colourful, illustrated PowerPoint presentation for the whole family. Our speaker team has brainstormed a brand new teaching framework which we are confident will bring the subject of ‘dinosaurs and the Bible’ alive in a memorable way (though each of our five speakers will bring his own unique presentation).
We have acquired some great-looking new models to take with us on the road. You’ll get to meet these ‘dinosaur friends’ of ours, for instance, Valentino, our larger-than-life Velociraptor—quite a scary guy!
Smaller youngsters can sit astride Alexis, our friendly Allosaurus!
Children 12 years old and under will receive an educational free gift.
