NASHVILLE – Russell Moore will be leaving his position with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission to lead a new initiative with Christianity Today.
The announcement was made Tuesday evening.
Moore will serve as a full-time public theologian for the publication and lead a new Public Theology Project beginning this summer.
“We could not be more pleased with the addition of Russell Moore in this role,” said Christianity Today’s president and CEO, Timothy Dalrymple in a press release. “Russell has established himself as one of the most significant evangelical voices of our time. He illuminates the relevance of the gospel to the whole of life, from everyday matters of faith to the great debates in our society and culture. Importantly, he does all of this in a voice that demonstrates what we at Christianity Today call beautiful orthodoxy, weaving together a deep commitment to the historic integrity of the church with a generous, charitable, and humble spirit.”
Moore, a native of Biloxi, Mississippi, has been leading the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission since June 2013.
“Christianity Today has meant a great deal to me in my faith journey,” Moore said in the press release. “I am thrilled to join the team and lead the Public Theology Project. We need to recover a theologically orthodox, intellectually credible, socially engaged, missiologically holistic, and generally connected witness for American evangelical Christianity.”
