Education

Background

Brian Edwards is a Christian Minister, Author, Lecturer and Teacher based in the United Kingdom. His twenty books include historical biographies, Christian theologies, and apologetics. His wider ministry includes preaching and lecturing both in the UK and abroad.

Testimony

Brian was not brought up in a gospel home, though both his parents later became committed Christians. In his teens he was introduced by some friends to the message of salvation, responded to the call of Christ and soon after felt a strong call to preach the gospel. At first he accepted the usual default position of theistic evolution but soon realized that this was not compatible with a plain reading of Scripture. His early link with AiG began when he was able to organize a visit by Ken Ham to a Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) family conference.
