Stetzer to discuss new book ‘Christians in the Age of Outrage’ at Samford, Oct. 23

Author, pastor and Christian missiologist Ed Stetzer will be the featured speaker at “Christians in the Age of Outrage,” a seminar to be held Tuesday, Oct. 23, at Samford University’s Brooks Hall Auditorium.

Stetzer is the author of several books, including “Christians in the Age of Outrage: How to Bring Our Best When the World Is at Its Worst,” set to release Oct. 2.

In his new book, Stetzer asserts that “there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested and politically co-opted.”

Using new research on evangelical attitudes, Stetzer examines the relationship between evangelicals and the age of outrage and “offers a constructive way forward.”

Stetzer holds the Billy Graham Distinguished Chair of Church, Mission and Evangelism at Wheaton College. He also serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton.

He will speak in two sessions during the 3-hour seminar and answer questions with a panel of guests in the final session.

Registration is open now at Samford University’s online event registration site. Groups are welcome.
