The program will include two lectures as well as question-and-answer sessions and a book-signing.

Enns, a professor at Eastern University in St. Davids, Pa., will be lecturing on and discussing his recent book, “The Sin of Certainty.”

With insight and humor, Enns explores what goes wrong when we have “believing the right things” at the center of our faith and what, instead, should be standing there, the church said in a news release about the talk.

“For those who have experienced their once rock-solid beliefs beginning to falter, Enns offers hope and guidance for finding a more trustworthy anchor,” it said. “By exploring scripture and reflecting on his own journey, Enns reveals that challenges and crises of faith may be opportunities for deepening our faith.”
