Press Release From Liberty University:
No. 1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Eric Metaxas has joined Liberty University’s Standing for Freedom Center as a senior fellow, contributing his breadth of intellect and passion for traditional freedoms to combat the surge of progressive worldviews affecting American society.
Metaxas joins forces with co-fellows Dr. David Brat, a former U.S. Congressman and dean of Liberty’s School of Business; Jenna Ellis, a constitutional expert and senior legal advisor for President Donald Trump; David Harris Jr., a political activist, author, and conservative podcast host; and many other public influencers.
“Having Eric Metaxas join the Freedom Center is very significant,” said Ryan Helfenbein, executive director of the Standing for Freedom Center. “He is one of the wisest Christian men I know, and his passion for Jesus and the conservative cause will surely aid our mission.”
The Standing for Freedom Center is a conservative think tank created to provide a biblical, measured response to questions about the intersection of faith and politics in the public sphere.
The Center, which launched last fall, equips convicted Christians with educational resources to preserve traditional American freedoms like religious liberty, limited government, free market principles, personal and national defense, and protection of life in all developmental stages.
“It’s an honor for me to serve the Freedom Center,” said Metaxas, who was Liberty’s 2014 baccalaureate speaker. “I’m thrilled at the work the center is doing to shed light on many important issues.”
The Standing for Freedom Center’s growing ambassadorship program allows Christians of all ages — from Liberty students to members of the public nationwide — an opportunity to advocate for these values using their social media accounts.
The Center posts content daily on its website and growing social media platforms. It also releases a journal each quarter. For more information, visit StandingforFreedom.com.
