‘Pursuing a Faith That Thinks’

Is This Possible if America is ‘Sick?’

Dr. Michael Brown Part of Impressive Lineup of Speakers at Southern Evangelical Seminary’s 24th Annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics; Conference Early Bird Deadline Ends Aug. 1


CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Is America sick? And, if so, what is the treatment?

Dr. Michael Brown asks these very questions in his upcoming book, “Saving a Sick America,” which will be released just weeks before he is a featured speaker at the 24th annual Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, www.ses.edu) National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA), which will focus on the timely theme of “Pursuing a Faith That Thinks.

Brown will join an impressive lineup of speakers at SES’s apologetics conference this fall and is set to interview NCCA speakers on his national radio show, “The Line of Fire with Dr. Michael Brown.” One of the largest events of its kind, the two-day conference will delve into headline-making topics on Oct. 13-14 at Calvary Church in Charlotte, N.C. For 25 years, SES has been educating Christians about how to best defend their beliefs.

“For nearly a quarter-century, the annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics has been a place where some of the greatest minds in the country come together to delve deeply into the issues that every Christian must consider,” said SES President and Evangelical leader Dr. Richard Land. “When we ‘bring every thought captive’ to Christ, our faith grows by leaps and bounds, and we will be all the better equipped to go out into the world and defend the eternal truths of scripture more intelligently and rationally. Dr. Michael Brown has been a longtime friend to SES and stands courageously in today’s world for what is right and good and in the best interests of America as a nation of faith. We’re honored that he will again address the thousands of attendees at this year’s conference just after the debut of his new book, ‘Saving a Sick America.’”

Dr. Michael Brown is the founder and president of the FIRE School of Ministry in Concord, N.C., director of the Coalition of Conscience, and host of the daily, nationally syndicated talk radio show, “The Line of Fire,” as well as the host of the apologetics television show, “Answering Your Toughest Questions,” which airs on the NRB-TV network. He became a believer in Jesus in 1971 as a 16-year-old heroin-shooting, LSD-using Jewish rock drummer. Since then, Brown has preached throughout America and around the world, bringing a message of repentance, revival, reformation and cultural revolution. He holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures from New York University and has served as an adjunct professor at Southern Evangelical Seminary. Brown is the author of 27 books, including the highly acclaimed five-volume series “Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus.”

Brown’s “Saving a Sick America: A Prescription for Moral and Cultural Transformation” is a handbook for a biblically based moral and cultural renaissance and reveals that the key to recapturing America’s greatness consists in returning to its spiritual and moral roots. America is at a tipping point, and never has this been more apparent than right now. Brown’s new book says that, yes, America has fallen—much further than many realize—but the country’s best days are ahead.

The author and host covers topics ranging from the sexualization of pop culture to the dumbing down of schools to the undermining of family structures to a pervasive culture of entitlement, while pointing consistently to the Bible’s solution to these issues. A radical call for reformation, written with sobriety and hope, “Saving a Sick America” provides the inspiration and guidance necessary for a moral and cultural revolution. Read more about “Saving a Sick America,” which will be released Sept. 26 by Thomas Nelson, at Amazon.com.

Brown will interview several of his fellow SES conference speakers on “The Line of Fire” in the coming weeks, including Gary Habermas, Greg Koukl, J. P. Moreland and J. Warner Wallace, as well as SES co-founder Norman Geisler and current SES president Dr. Richard Land. These authors and apologists will join other knowledgeable speakers at the conference, including Ken Ham, Jay Richards, Hugh Ross, Frank Turek and many more.

At the SES conference, the American Family Association will also debut its new film “The God Who Speaks” as a powerful feature-length documentary that explores the evidence of the Bible’s inspiration and authority through some of the most highly respected voices within evangelicalism. The film answers some common objections, observes the effects of denying biblical authority and intends to reveal the trustworthiness of the Bible’s claims. A tool to use for decades to come, “The God Who Speaks” will help many of today’s biblically illiterate Christians defend their faith in a culture that is often hostile to Christianity.
