Dr. Mohler Headshot-4 lowerLOUISVILLE, Ky. (SBTS) — In a public forum at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary April 25, SBTS President R. Albert Mohler Jr. and political journalist Cal Thomas will discuss the intersection of religion and politics. The free event will be held on Monday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in Alumni Memorial Chapel.

Describing Thomas as “one of the most respected journalists in America,” Mohler said the conversation will focus on current issues in American politics and voting. He said the idea for the event was sparked after Thomas called him about an episode of Mohler’s “The Briefing,” which is a daily podcast examining news and current events from a Christian worldview.

“I guarantee you that it will be a very lively conversation,” Mohler said in announcing the event during an April 19 chapel service. “Cal Thomas is a very gracious man, a very thoughtful man; he is a deeply Christian man.”

The ninth president of Southern Seminary, Mohler is a widely sought commentator on evangelical convictions on theology, politics, and cultural issues. In addition to his daily podcast “The Briefing,” Mohler has authored numerous essays and books, including most recently We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong.
