Chagrin Falls – Bestselling author Eric Metaxas will be speaking at Parkside Church in Chagrin Falls on Friday evening, May 4. Metaxas will discuss the men of faith who are the subjects of his New York Times bestsellers, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery. The event is sponsored by Agape Christian Academy and will be held in the Commons at Parkside. Tickets are $40 each and include dinner.
Metaxas will challenge the audience with the question “Are you living what you say you believe?” According to the author, “Bonhoeffer was the real deal – that’s harder to find that we’d like to admit.” He was a theologian who lived out his faith in one of history’s darkest eras during the reign of Adolf Hitler in Germany.
In a decidedly eclectic career, Eric Metaxas has written for VeggieTales, Chuck Colson, and the New York Times, three things not ordinarily in the same sentence. Most recently he was the keynote speaker at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC an event attended by the President and First Lady along with members of Congress and other US and world leaders.
