Online Bookings open NEXT WEEK but you can also check here for a sneak preview, talk summaries and to see reviews from previous conference attendees: http://www.learnex.co.nz/Editable/conference/FirelightJayWile2011.shtml
Dr Jay Wile (www.drwile.com) was extremely well received by adults and teens alike when he was last here five years ago. Dr Wile is an international speaker, author, and the founder of the ever popular “Apologia Science” curriculum. He is a very entertaining and engaging speaker so even if you haven’t read his books or used his materials, you will benefit greatly from what he has to say. Dr Jay is a Christian author who will be speaking from this perspective but anyone is welcome to attend the conference as it is a great for Professional Development and also a wonderful opportunity to network with fellow home educators.

Creation versus Evolution: Religion versus Science or Religion versus Religion
