A conversation with Southern Baptist leader Dr. Albert Mohler
The Southern Baptist Church, with 15-million members, is the largest protestant denomination in the country.The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Louisville, Kentucky, is its oldest and – arguably – its most influential seminary.Albert Mohler is the president of that seminary, and that makes him one of the nation’s most influential evangelical leaders.Mohler has been at Southern Seminary for more than 20 years, but when he arrived there, a young man still in his 30s, he had a huge task before him.The Seminary had taken a hard left turn into liberalism, and his job was to do no less than purge the seminary and restore it to its biblical, Baptist roots. But before we talked about how he did that, we first discussed his early adult years as a Christian journalist.
