The Southern Baptist Convention has selected Russell Moore, dean of the School of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, to be the next president of its Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), WORLD Magazine reports. Moore, 41, will succeed Richard Land in the post dedicated to addressing public policy and the nation's social and moral concerns. Land praised the choice, saying in a statement: "Dr. Moore is a godly Christian minister, a devoted husband and father, and convictional, committed Baptist. His excellent academic preparation, combined with his keen mind and his tender heart for God and His people, make him a person uniquely suited to serve our Savior and Southern Baptists in this crucial role at such a critical moment in our nation's history." Moore has been dean and senior vice president for academic administration at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., since 2004. He also teaches Christian theology and ethics.
