Michael Barber is Professor of Theology, Scripture and Catholic Thought at John Paul the Great Catholic University, in San Diego, California. He is currently finishing a Ph.D. in Theology.

He will be speaking about Christmas at my monastery beginning at 2 P.M. on December 9.

+ Why do some scholars doubt the truth of the Christmas story?
+ Do the Gospels contradict each other?
+ Was Jesus really born in Bethlehem? If so, why there?
+ Why is the Christmas star a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy?
+ Why did the magi bring gold, frankincense, and myrrh?
+ Why can we trust the Gospels?
+ Why is Jesus placed in a “manger”?
... much, much more!

We are opening Michael Barber’s presentation to the general public.

Hello! About how long will this lecture be? Is it appropriate for a 6 year old child (assuming such child is quiet and interested)?

I don't know how long it will actually end up being. However, I guess it would be near an hour long. We won't turn away any children. However, the lecture will be at an adult level.

Mister Barber has an interesting blog called SINGING IN THE REIGN. He has also written a very good introductory commentary on the Apocalypse called COMING SOON.
