BWA President David Coffey Honored

BWA President David Coffey was recently named as the 2008 Baptist of the Year by EthicsDaily.com. Coffey was selected for his "tireless initiatives and frequent conversations" in which he has "pushed for constructive engagement between Baptists and Muslims, sought to advance religious liberty in predominantly Muslim countries and spoken up in Israel for Palestinian pastors." Coffey "has kept the eye of global Baptists on the Middle East and the role of people of faith as peacemakers." (copyright is EthicsDaily.com)
