Dr. Ben Carson and Eric Metaxas to Headline Special Event at NRB 2014

Dr. Ben Carson & Eric MetaxasNRB is pleased to announce that BreakPoint Radio Co-Host Eric Metaxas will be bringing a thought-provoking and entertaining forum to the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention  in Nashville, TN.

And joining Metaxas will be Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., Emeritus Professor of Neurosurgery, Oncology, Plastic Surgery, & Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Medicine and Chairman & CEO of American Business Collaborative, LLC.

“NRB 2014 participants are in for a treat,” remarked NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “Dr. Ben Carson and 'Socrates in the City' Host Eric Metaxas will be a highlight at the 2014 Convention, which is already filled with several great features. We are so blessed to host this very special event."

Every month or so, Metaxas holds an event in which people can begin a dialogue on "Life, God, and other small topics" by hearing a notable thinker and writer such as Dr. Francis Collins, Sir John Polkinghorne, Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, N.T. Wright, Os Guinness, Peter Kreeft, or George Weigel.  Topics have included "Making Sense Out of Suffering," "The Concept of Evil after 9-11," and "Can a Scientist Pray?"

“Our goal is to provide a setting in which busy and successful professionals can think about life’s most important questions,” commented Metaxas.

In addition to his appearance at the special forum with Metaxas, Dr. Carson will also speak at the Media Leadership Dinner, an invitation-only gathering of top leaders from among NRB’s member organizations.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have Dr. Carson join us for these events at NRB 2014,” stated Dr. Johnson. “His distinguished career speaks for itself.”

With thousands expected to attend, NRB 2014 will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN, February 22-25, 2014. For more information, go to www.nrbconvention.org.
