Princeton (A.B., magna cum laude) and Oxford (D.Phil.) educated, Dr. Richard Land has served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission since 1988. During his tenure as representative for the largest Protestant denomination in the country, Dr. Land has represented Southern Baptist and other Evangelicals' concerns in the halls of Congress, before U.S. Presidents, and in the media.
In 2005, Dr. Land was featured in Time Magazine as one of The Twenty-five Most Influential Evangelicals in America.
As co-host of For Faith & Family, a nationally syndicated weekday radio program, Dr. Land speaks passionately and authoritatively on the social, ethical, and public policy issues facing our country.
Dr. Land's book, The Divided States of America? What Liberals and Conservatives Get Wrong About Faith and Politics is published by Thomas Nelson and was re-released in January 2011 with a new preface.
The book has earned accolades from a diverse audience, with endorsements from Madeleine Albright, Peter Gomes, Michael Novak, and Peter Berger, among many others. Senator Joseph Lieberman penned the foreword to the book.
Dr. Land has also authored Imagine! A God-Blessed America (Broadman & Holman, 2005) and Real Homeland Security (Broadman & Holman, 2004).
Dr. Land's record as a pro-family advocate is capped by his proudest accomplishment--his over 35-year marriage and personal investment in the lives of his three children and his wife, Dr. Rebekah Land, a psychotherapist in private practice.
