Dr. Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention, will speak in chapel at Cedarville University on Tuesday, August 27. Chapel begins at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.

In 2017, Politico Magazine named Moore to its list of the top 50 influence-makers in Washington, D.C. He has been profiled in The Washington Post and The New Yorker.

Moore’s latest book, “The Storm-Tossed Family: How the Cross Reshapes the Home,” was named Christianity Today’s 2019 Book of the Year. He has also written “Onward: Engaging the Culture Without Losing the Gospel,” “Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches” and “Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ.”

Prior to his role with the ERLC, Moore served as provost and dean of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, where he taught theology and ethics.
