Friday Five Interview – Russell Moore

Today I’d like to repost an interview I did in 2010 with one of my favorite contemporary Christian leaders, Dr. Russell Moore. Russell D. Moore is the Senior Vice President for Academic Administration and Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

The grandson of a Mississippi Baptist preacher, Dr. Moore is also a preaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville, where he ministers weekly. Dr. Moore is a thoughtful writer whose columns always spark introspection and discussion. He is a senior editor of Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity and also blogs regularly at Moore to the Point.

Dr. Moore’s has written several books, including Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches, and  Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ.  Prior to entering the ministry, he was an aide to U.S. Congressman Gene Taylor. He and his wife Maria have four sons: Benjamin, Timothy, Samuel, and Jonah.

Friday Five Interview: S. Michael Houdmann (Gotquestions.org)

This is the last of three classic Friday Five interviews I’m posting while our family enjoys some vacation time. This is with S. Michael Houdmann, founder and proprietor of Gotquestions.org, one of the most heavily trafficked Christian sites online. And believe it or not, this interview continues to be one of the most popular pages on my blog:

Last year, while attending the annual gathering of the IFCA, I stopped by a booth and met S. Michael Houdmann, a graduate of Calvary Bible College and Seminary. He introduced me to his powerful website, gotquestions.org. I remember thinking, “Why hadn’t I discovered this before?” Since that time I’ve regularly visited gotquestions.org. Its a unique ministry idea. Essentially they answer Bible questions every week, not just easy questions like “Who is Jesus?” but tough theological questions. And every single question is answered with Biblical precision and accuracy. I can’t tell you how many times I was preaching or counseling on a narrow theological idea and just needed a sort of launching point in Scripture and turned to gotquestions.org. They have an archive of thousands of questions and even have a page of FAQ, what they consider their most important questions about God and the Bible.

By the way, Got Questions is now available as an iPhone app.

I think gotquestions.org is one of the most profoundly useful tools to the Christian today. Today, we have the privilege of talking about gotquestions with its founder, S. Michael Houdman.

Friday Five Interview: Jerry Jenkins


Our family is taking some needed time off for a couple of weeks. So between June 24th – July 8th, I’m reposting some classic Friday Five interviews. This interview with my friend, Jerry Jenksin originally posted on June 4th, 2010:

Does Jerry Jenkins really need an introduction? Jerry is one of the most successful, celebrated Christian writers of all time. He is the author of over 175 books, including the 70 million selling Left Behind series. He is the former editor of Moody Magazine and is now the Chairman of the Board of Moody Bible Institute. He has been interviewed on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, and other news outlets. Along with Dr. Tim LaHaye, he was featured on the cover of Newsweek. He is the owner of Jenkins Entertainment, which produces Hollywood-quality movies with a Christian worldview. His latest project is a new series with Dr. LaHaye, The Jesus Chronicles, which explore life during the time of Christ.

From a personal perspective, I’ve always admired Jerry Jenkins. Back before he reached Left Behind fame, I was reading Dallas O’Neil and the Baker Street Sports Club and the Gil Thorpe comic strip in The Chicago Tribune. I had the opportunity to meet Jerry several years ago at a book signing and was impressed by his humility and grace. Recently I read his novel, Riven, and was powerfully moved by the story. Its a privilege to interview him here on Friday Five.
