Fixed Point Foundation has a major conference rapidly approaching July 23rd – 25th in Birmingham, Alabama. Tom Ascol is one of the featured speakers. Fixed Point executive director Larry Alex Taunton here interviews Tom about events convulsing the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in America. Tom is the president of Founders Ministries and he is the senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida. We think you will find this insightful whether you are a Baptist or not. Why? Because it is a microcosm of the whole culture.

Larry Alex Taunton is the Executive Director of the Fixed Point Foundation and a freelance columnist contributing to USA Today, Fox News, First Things, The Atlantic, CNN, Daily Caller, and The American Spectator. He is also the author of The Grace Effect, The Gospel Coalition Book of the Year The Faith of Christopher Hitchens, Around the World in (More Than) 80 Days. (Available to order now) You can subscribe to his blog at and find him on Twitter @larrytaunton.
