Professor interviewed for The History Channel

Liberty University is no stranger to camera crews.

When filmmakers are creating religious or historical documentaries for the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, or shows such as “60 Minutes,” LU professors are sometimes called upon for their leading academic expertise.

On Wednesday an independent documentary crew filming for The History Channel stopped by campus to interview Dr. Thomas Ice, Executive Director of the Pre-Trib Research Center and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology. The crew was led by production manager Al Vincent.

“They were going around interviewing people from different viewpoints about what they think the Antichrist is going to be or has been,” Ice said.

Ice said he believes the Antichrist will be an individual who is a political – not religious – leader who will come in the future and set up a revived Roman Empire.

Over the years, Ice has become accustomed to requests from filmmakers. He has participated in nearly a dozen projects for broadcast stations such as the Discovery Channel, ABC, National Geographic, and CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

It is not known at this time when the Antichrist documentary will be broadcast.
