On the stage

Written by 

Christian writer comes to Franklin

Christian advocate, evangelist, and writer Josh McDowell will host a presentation at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

McDowell will deliver a discussion entitled “Save Our Children, Save Our World!” focusing on one central message — finding a way to reverse the slippery slope that attracts children before it’s too late.

Having experienced many hardships and challenges throughout his childhood, McDowell understands how easy it is for young people to stray from the Gospel. He has written or co-authored more than 135 books including Seeing Yourself As God Sees You and The Last Christian Generation. He has received four Christian Book Awards (formally known as the Gold Medallion Book Award), an honor he shares with Rev. Billy Graham, Max Lucado, James Dobson, among others. 

Having addressed more than 25 million people and given over 26,000 talks in 125 countries, McDowell is very passionate about his ministry. In the United States, he and his team have created many cutting-edge live events to help encourage young people to stand strong in their faith when faced with a culture full of temptation and deceit.
