Voddie Baucham

Veritas Press is having Voddie Baucham come to speak at Teacher Training in July. He will also be speaking that Monday night and it is open to the public for $5. Check out their website for more details. Mr. Baucham is well known to some, not so much to others. I decided to post a couple of YouTube clips so you can become familiar with him. My husband and I had the privilege of having dinner with him and his son a few months ago. He is a great man and is passionate about what he has to say. Our family is certainly excited to witness the work which God is doing through him. You will find my favorite quote in the first clip. In another clip (that I can not find) he makes the Caesar statement after quoting the statistic that 70 to 80% of evangelical children are falling away from the Christian faith by the end of their freshman year in college. I have heard several men say this recently. At first I thought it could be an exaggeration. I am pretty cynical. But, after doing a little research myself, it seems to be true. Very sad, but true.

Thanks for sharing those links, Julie. I watched the ones you had posted and few more that came up on YouTube. I had never heard of him, but I appreciate the way he clearly presents these issues that so many are avoiding. Hope that the teacher training goes well! :)

If you liked what he had to say and are looking for some reading material, I would highly recommend his book, Family Driven Faith. I think you and Pete would really enjoy it. Bruce and I heard him on the radio about a year ago while traveling. When we returned home I ordered his book and we really enjoyed what he had to say.

Those are great clips. Just bought the book, and am still debating the teacher training: online or in person?...or dare I indulge in BOTH? ;-)
