Mark Taylor, president and CEO of Tyndale House Publishers, one of the largest Christian publishers in the country, presented a recently released 30th anniversary edition of the book to Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. during Monday’s convocation.

Willmington and Taylor recently recorded an interview with Victory FM for the “Liberty Journal Radio” program about this accomplishment. The interview is available on the Victory FM website.

Willmington was invited by Liberty co-founder Dr. Elmer Towns to start Liberty Bible Institute as a campus program in 1972. In 1976, he started the home correspondence course, Liberty Home Bible Institute, which became the world’s largest correspondence diploma program on the Bible.
