What challenges do we face as human beings? How does our faith inform our understanding of mental health, identity, technology, life, and civic engagement?

Join us as we advance the conversation at our second-annual Exploring Personhood conference, presented by the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary on Feb. 21-22, 2024.

In this post, get to know one of our speakers, Dr. John Wilsey, who will speak on Christian nationalism in a lecture titled, “The Dead, the Living, and the Yet to be Born: Tradition and American Nationality.”
