Eric Metaxas: A Winsome and Prophetic Speech

February 3, 2012

Two days ago, Eric Metaxas offered an incredible keynote speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. I strongly encourage you to watch it. Denny Burk  provides a link to the video and offers the following summary:

Eric Metaxas had President Obama and distinguished guests in stitches as he shared his Christian testimony at the National Prayer Breakfast. He also shared some reflections about—you guessed it—Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He had some serious and prophetic words about the humanity of the unborn. He even spoke about having a biblical view of sexuality. All of this with the President sitting just a few feet away. This was a courageous talk delivered with winsomeness and joy.

Click here to see the video on Burk’s site. Emily Belz, of World Magazine, offers a fuller summary here.

Metaxas is the author of Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery and Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Prophet, Martyr, Spy.

    Pastor — Great post! I had just seen this myself yesterday and passed it along to friends and family, too. He’s written about 2 amazing men in this world’s history; men of whom “the world was not worthy of”. I also appreciate viewing Mr. Metaxas’ “authentic” faith.
