Singer/Songwriter/Author/Theologian Promotes CD And Books At Annual Convention

Nashville TN- Singer/songwriter, author and theologian Michael Milton recently attended the 2012 National Religious Broadcasters Convention, held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Milton, who currently serves as the chancellor/CEO-elect of Reformed Theological Seminary and as a chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserves, was at the convention to promote his two latest book releases, Hit By Friendly Fire: What To Do When Other Believers Hurt You, and Songs in the Night: How God Transforms Our Pain Into Praise, as well as his current CD, Through The Open Door.

"My experience at this year's NRB was one filled with the joy of meeting old friends and new friends, but also of discovering new ways to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ," Milton says. "I also talked with colleagues in broadcast media about changes, core values, opportunities, challenges, and our common dependence on God through it all."

"One of the high points was being able to hear what God is doing in the lives of others; to see the films, books, and other Christian media that are coming out in this day. As a pastor we need it now more than ever. I was honored and humbled that we were able to introduce two new books, Songs in the Night: How God Transforms our Pain in the Praise, and Hit by Friendly Fire: What to Do When Other Believers Hurt You. My greatest concern as a pastor remains to the bring the Word of Gospel healing, in song, book, and broadcasting, to broken hearts. I trust and pray that our time at the NRB will be used with the Lord in some way to do this," he says.

Thousands of Christian broadcasters, programmers, ministers and others participated in the convention, which is presented annually by the National Religious Broadcasters.

About Michael Milton:
Milton, the Chancellor/CEO-Elect of Reformed Theological Seminary, is an ordained Presbyterian pastor who earned his doctorate degree in theology from The University of Wales and holds multiple degrees from such respected institutions as Knox Theological Seminary, MidAmerica Nazarene University and the Defense Language Institute. He also currently serves as Professor of Pastoral Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary.

Milton has released three CDs, penned 11 books and writes for numerous scholarly periodicals. He was appointed to the College of Military Preachers, serves as a Chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserve and is an instructor at the Armed Forces Chaplain School. But anyone who has listened to his music can attest that "stuffy" is not a word that is found in his vocabulary. Much like his friend and sometimes musical collaborator, legendary Christian singer/songwriter Michael Card ("El Shaddai"), Milton has an uncanny ability to unpack complex theological concepts into everyday language that makes them both memorable and accessible.

Milton's latest book, Hit By Friendly Fire, is published by EP Books, an independent missions organization based in the United Kingdom. Songs in the Night: How God Transforms Our Pain to Praise was released recently by P&R Publishing.

Milton's current CD, Through the Open Door, is available through Music for Missions, an independent record label that donates two-thirds of profits to various mission organizations. Proceeds from the project go to Reformed Theological Seminary for the education of pastors and missionaries.
