Overview

The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) is the public policy arm of America’s largest Protestant denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention, and is dedicated to addressing social, moral, and ethical concerns, paying particular attention to their impact on U.S. families and their faith.
 
A Matter of Conviction chronicles the history of the ERLC against the backdrop of “culture war” challenges that drive the larger movement of evangelical activism, from the organization’s earliest days to its current activities under the leadership of conservative values champion Dr. Richard Land. Author and renowned pastor Jerry Sutton anchors his writing in the biblical mandate for cultural engagement, a biblical understanding of the relationship between church and society, and the rise of Baptist influence in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
 
This heartfelt book will interest all who are passionate about preserving the Christian values upon which America was founded.
