Albert Mohler became president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in February 1993 when he was 33 years old.
That line stood out to me most in this book (p. 4):
Russell Moore. Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel. Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 2015.
(See Collin Hansen’s review.)
R. Albert Mohler Jr. We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong. Nashville: Nelson, 2015. [Read more…] about Competing Visions of Sexuality
The annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society is scheduled to take place in San Francisco later this month. The program is available as a PDF.
There are four prioritized reasons to attend this annual meeting:
- Buy books.
- Meet re projects.
- Attend sessions.

These two MP3s from Sovereign Grace’s 2003 Leadership Conference include Al Mohler‘s “testimony about his call to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in order to highlight key points of his messages”:
It doesn’t get much better in your earbuds than Mohler’s comeback to the postmodernist faculty member who refused to interpret the Bible straightforwardly but insisted on a rigorously literal interpretation of his contract—followed by C. J. Mahaney’s uproarious laughter. I was edified (and, I admit, entertained). I highly recommend these twoMP3s.

- Mohler before He Became President of Southern: “I Intend to Age”
This morning John McCain announced his VP: Sarah Palin.
Almost four months ago, Al Mohler highlighted the Palin family in an article (“Welcome to the World, Trig Paxson Van Palin“) and on his radio show (also titled “Welcome to the World, Trig Paxson Van Palin“).
Here’s a description of the radio show:
A little boy with an extra chromosome was born on April 18. His name is Trig Paxson Van Palin and his new home is the Alaska Governor’s Mansion in Juneau. His mom is Governor Sarah Palin, who along with her husband Todd, has welcomed Trig as their second son and fifth child.
On today’s show, Mohler explains why Trig’s very existence defies the Culture of Death and gives us all hope.
