Manassas, VA– Best-selling author and radio host Eric Metaxas will speak at the NRB Media Leadership Dinner on Sunday, March 3, during the NRB 2013 Convention in Nashville, TN.
The invitation-only gathering assembles the “principals” of NRB’s 500+ member organizations and specially-invited VIP guests for a unique time of inspiration and interaction.
"I am excited to have Eric speak at this special event,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “With his clever wit and punchy humor, Eric is an extremely effective communicator whose words often serve as a much-needed prophetic cry in today’s culture.”
Metaxas currently co-hosts BreakPoint, a radio commentary that airs daily on more than 1,200 outlets with an estimated weekly listening audience of eight million people. He is also the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. Named “Book of the Year” by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) and called a “biography of uncommon power,” Bonhoeffer appeared on numerous 2010 “Best of the Year” lists and was featured in the Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, NPR, CNN, FoxNews, C-SPAN’s Book TV, Christianity Today, and The Weekly Standard.
In 2011, Metaxas was the 17th recipient of the Canterbury Medal awarded by the Becket Fund for Religious Freedom. Previous medalists include Mitt Romney, Chuck Colson, and Elie Wiesel.
More recently, Metaxas was the keynote speaker at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC, an event attended by the President and First Lady, the Vice President, members of Congress, and other U.S. and world leaders.
