“The goal of this event is to allow three prominent voices in the public square — one Jewish (Prager), one evangelical Christian (Mohler) and one Catholic (Douthat) — to engage in an open, honest and entertaining dialogue” about the challenges of secularism and changing morality, according to a news release by Hashtag Productions. “This is about asking and answering tough questions in a God-honoring and purposeful way.”

The event will take place in Alumni Memorial Chapel, beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for general admission. A limited number of $100 VIP reserved seating tickets are available, which includes admittance to a 6 p.m. catered, pre-show reception with the speakers. Southern Seminary’s Event Productions office is selling a limited number of student tickets for $15, and students with an ID may also purchase tickets at the door.

Tickets and more information are available at hashtagpros.com.
