R. Albert Mohler Jr. photoR. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is scheduled to appear on “FOX & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, Dec. 30 live at 6:50 a.m. (EST).

Mohler will discuss his Dec. 29 essay, “Newsweek on the Bible — So Misrepresented It’s a Sin,” in which he critiques a major cover story in the national magazine, “The Bible: So Misunderstood It’s a Sin.” The Jan. 2, 2015, Newsweek essay was written by veteran journalist Kurt Eichenwald.

In spite of Eichenwald’s otherwise “impressive reputation,” Mohler writes he “appears to be far outside his area of expertise and knowledge. More to the point, he really does not address the subject of the Bible like a reporter at all. His article is a hit-piece that lacks any journalistic balance or credibility. His only sources cited within the article are from severe critics of evangelical Christianity, and he does not even represent some of them accurately.”

Mohler is expected to be interviewed by “FOX & Friends” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck and special guest host former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA).

According to the network, “FOX & Friends” is the number one morning show in America with more than two million viewers, and is the most-watched program on cable news between 6-9 a.m.
