David Currie in California

For those in California...

Nationally known Catholic speaker David Currie will be speaking in Temecula this Thursday and Friday. Currie was raised in a devout Fundamentalist family. Both of his parents taught at the Moody Bible Institute. He received a degree from Trinity International University and studied in the Masters of Divinity program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

On Thursday, January 18th, Currie will explain his conversion to the Catholic faith. On Friday, January 19th, he will speak on the Protestant idea of the Rapture and how he was drawn to the Catholic interpretation of Scripture's teaching on the last days.

St. Jeanne de Lestonnac School
32650 Avenida Lestonnac Temecula, CA 92592

Exit Rancho California in Temecula, head east to
Butterfield Stage, turn right on Butterfield Stage first left
to the school.

In particular, I want to mention his book, Rapture: The End-Times Error That Leaves the Bible Behind. While the book's title may not indicate it (not to mention its cover), the book is actually a great explication of Daniel, Zechariah, the Apocalyptic discourses of Jesus and the book of Revelation. It is incredibly well-researched--in fact, I know of no better book that deals with the early Christian interpretation of Daniel. Make no mistake, this is no ordinary popular book. In fact, Currie's analysis of the New Testament's use of the book of Daniel is quite excellent.

I hate to say it, but the book is unfortunately titled--a publisher's attempt to appeal to a larger readership. A better title would have been something like, The Last Days According to Scripture: How the New Testament and the Early Church Read the Old Testament Prophets.

I wonder if he is the separated-at-birth twin of actor Peter Davison of All Creatures Great and Small and Dr Who fame?
