Forty years ago, a so-called Moral Majority came to national prominence, as vocal Christians resisted gay-rights advocates in Florida. In the ensuing four decades, the moral norms of our nation have shifted and eroded to the point that Christians now find themselves a definite moral minority. What happened, and can we reverse the slide? Dr. Al Mohler helps us understand and respond to the fluid gender and moral ethos of a brave new post-modern America.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. serves as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – the flagship school of the Southern Baptist Convention and one of the largest seminaries in the world. In addition to his presidential duties, Dr. Mohler hosts two programs: “The Briefing,” a daily analysis of news and events from a Christian worldview; and “Thinking in Public,” a series of conversations with the day’s leading thinkers. He also writes a popular blog and a regular commentary on moral, cultural and theological issues.
A native of Lakeland, Fla., Dr. Mohler was a Faculty Scholar at Florida Atlantic University before receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala. He holds a master of divinity degree and the doctor of philosophy (in systematic and historical theology) from Southern Seminary. He has pursued additional study at the St. Meinrad School of Theology and has done research at University of Oxford (England).
He is married to Mary, and they have two children, Katie and Christopher.
