Dr. Olthuis and his wife, Arvilla, visited a student discussion group who were reading his book I Pledge You My Troth. They entertained questions and offered further insights on the subjects of theology, gender, marriage, friendship, and relationships. They then participated in ICCE’s Dinner With a Side of Justice series to discuss the topic “Justice and Love.” Finally, Dr. Olthuis gave a guest lecture in our class “Postmodernism and the Question of God” where he discussed sovereignty, the weakness of God, and more.
