On July 1, I assumed the presidency of Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES) in Charlotte, N.C.
Some have asked me whether I was retiring from the culture wars when I retired after 25 years of service to the Southern Baptists Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. My answer was, and is, an emphatic "NO!"
In becoming president of a seminary that specializes and focuses on apologetics, I am just moving from front-line combat to a training command, helping to prepare the next generation of green berets and paratroopers for the Lord's army. I fervently believe apologetics is the way we will spell Christian evangelism, missions, and discipleship in the 21st century.
