He is the author of the best-selling, award-winning survey of religious persecution worldwide titled Their Blood Cries Out, released 1997. His speech introducing the International Religious Freedom Act in the U.S. Senate was described as "a powerful and persuasive analysis" and an "exhaustive survey, "which simply cannot be ignored."

He is in frequent demand for lectures and media appearances including interviews on ABC Evening News; CBS Evening News; CNN; Fox; PBS; the BBC, Australian Broadcasting Corporation; Canadian Broadcasting Corporation; and South African Broadcasting Corporation.

His work has been the subject of articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Boston Globe, Dallas Morning News, Christian Science Monitor, Weekly Standard, First Things, New Republic, Globe and Mail, Christianity Today, Decision, Reader's Digest and several hundred other newspapers and magazines.

Omar Good Distinguished Visiting Professor, Juniata College; and adjunct Professor in the Graduate Program in Philosophy at Rutgers University.

Call for Papers, Conference Schedule

I am inviting all Pew people past and present to participate this year by either giving a paper or just attending the sessions and associated activities. I am going to present a paper myself. Hopefully other DBU faculty will as well. It will be a great time of intellectual and spiritual stimulation and it will afford a great opportunity to renew old friendships from days gone by. God has blessed us with a great community these past six years, and it would be a blessing to have a Pew reunion of sorts at this last conference.

In addition to our keynote speaker Paul Marshall, we will also be attending a concert featuring singer/song writer Kate Campbell at Uncle Calvin's Coffee House, an acoustic guitar venue at North Park Presbyterian on Friday night, April 4 (see http://www.unclecalvins.org/). Kate Campbell, whom the Pew College Society brought to DBU for a concert last October, is a most remarkable lyracist and vocalist, with soul-stirring songs that largely focus on southern culture and themes of faith, race, land, and other truly human things. Pew will pay for your ticket to the concert! For more on Kate, go to http://www.katecampell.com
