This year’s Keynote Speaker is Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin.
From the website, https://www.rebeccamclaughlin.org, McLaughlin says:
Two things have always fascinated me: the power of words and the message of the gospel. I love exploring the message of Jesus with broken people (all of us), and I long to be part of the rediscovery of the Christian faith as an intellectual movement.
My first book, Confronting Christianity: 12 hard questions for the world’s largest religion, was published by Crossway and The Gospel Coalition in 2019. It was featured on the TED summer reading list and named “Book of the Year” by Christianity Today.
I grew up in the UK and I hold a Ph.D. in English literature from Cambridge and a theology degree from Oak Hill College in London
In 2008, I moved to America and spent 9 years with The Veritas Forum, where I served as VP of Content and had the privilege of identifying and equipping Christian professors to speak about their faith in relation to their work.
In September 2017, I co-founded Vocable Communications. Vocable is a speech-focused, data-driven communications firm dedicated to helping leaders deliver messages that change minds.
I have one husband, three kids, and enough close friends to sustain my ENFP heart!
