SBC’s Richard Land comments on the death of Dr. D. James Kennedy

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, issued the following statement following the death of Dr. D. James Kennedy, prominent evangelical leader and founder of Coral Ridge Ministries:

“All of Christendom should be saddened by the home-going of Dr. D. James Kennedy, one of the giants among Christian preachers and statesmen of the last third of the twentieth century and beyond.

“We will miss his keen mind, his pastor’s heart and his evangelistic fervor. Although we are saddened at our loss, we rejoice that our brother in Christ is now with the Lord Jesus for eternity having heard a hearty, ‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant.’”
