He is gaining an audience across the country. Metaxas is the author of the current bestselling biography Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, about Dietrich Bonhoeffer the pacifist German pastor who stood against and was executed by Adolph Hitler. He also wrote another bestselling biography, Amazing Grace, that tells the story of William Wilberforce, who brought an end to the slave trade in Great Britain. That book was a companion to the movie of the same title. You might know Metaxas as the daring keynote speaker at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. Or as the author of the children’s VeggieTale video about Esther, Queen of the Jews.

Providence Hall, a college preparatory school, brings Eric Metaxas to speak at their third annual Fall Forum: Engaging Ideas of Consequence, on October 4, 2012. “We are excited to have Mr. Metaxas speak to the community at this event, “ said Mr. David O’Neil, head of school. “I have heard him speak on several occasions, and he brings delightful humor to his presentations, while speaking boldly about the need to demonstrate greater personal courage in standing up for what is right and good.”

The Fall Forum is open to the community. Come hear Eric Metaxas on Thursday, October 4, 7 pm at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort. Enjoy a delightful evening with an exciting speaker, live jazz music, and delectable desserts.

All proceeds benefit Providence Hall, providing Christian college preparatory education for grades 7-12 in Santa Barbara since 2007.
